Surprises on the journey to a 7000-year old civilization.
The Persians are first Historical People; Persia was the first Empire that passed away (Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel)
One of the earliest origins of civilization in human history is the Iranian plateau. Iran or Persia is the country of sedentary living civilization for more than 7,000 years. These civilizations were famous in their time. A great archaeologist, Roman Ghirshman, discovered one of the earliest origins of civilization in human history in Kashan Silk hill which is related to 7,500 years ago and introduced it to the world. And Jiroft ancient hill related to 7000 years ago has all the traits of a great civilization which has been introduced to the world or burnt city with a history of 8000 years is another place in which the first eye surgery has been performed in it. This city is one of the most precious Iranian heritages which are enrolled in the World Heritage List of UNESCO.
Iranians were the first nation that presented human rights law by the righteous Achaemenid Cyrus the great to the world. Cyrus the great helped Jewish people who suffered from injustice of a king in Mesopotamia. He stood against injustice to spread freedom of opinion and thought and expression in all countries under his law.
Iranians have the first women’s monarchy in their Elamite civilization in the second millennium BC. This was when the other women were buried alive in ancient Mesopotamia. But in Persia, women had the highest governmental or social positions.
I invite you to visit a territory in which a large part of our modern civilization is built on the debris of ancient heritages.
Iran is located on the way of historic Silk Road route which connected the West and the East of the world together, so all nations and civilizations of the world had to cross this country. That’s why; it has always had an alive and dynamic civilization. So, this country has thousands of years of experience in hosting and hospitality of the passengers (about ten times the entire history of tourism industry). A review of itinerary of passengers who have passed on from Iran or tourists who have come to Iran in recent years bears witness to the friendship and respect of Iranians to passengers.
