About the City
Esfahan is the capital city of Esfahan Province which is well known as “Nesfe Jahan” meaning “Half of the World”. This city is geographically located in a semi-desert region, enjoying a pleasant climate and regular seasons. It is famous due to its Zayande Rood (River) which has created many cities and counties of this province. The residents of this province are called Esfahani whose spoken language is Persian with sweat Esfahani accent.
Esfahan is considered as the center of historical masterpieces which are reflective of Islamic architecture from Safavid era. Discovering this city on foot across the famous bridges, around the UNESCO’s site of Naqsh-e Jahan Square with its beautiful mosques and through Esfahan traditional bazaar, are an outstanding examples of this architectural style.
In addition, this city is well known for its marvelous handicrafts such Marquetry (Khatam), Enamel work (Mina), Miniature or painting, copper dishes, silver work, colorful rugs and carpet. There are a wide variety of popular and tasty dishes and pastries such as Beryani, Fereni & Shireh, Khoresht mast (Yogurt Stew), Doogh and Gooshfil- a strange combination of Doogh (yogurt drink) and Gooshfil (kind of sweet).
