Boasting three millennia of recorded history, Iran enjoys a great legacy of ruins and hallowed stonework. The Iranian style of architecture is distinctive and creative. Persepolis and the rare impressive edifices of Isfahan as well as the Air Traps of the central desert region are the hallmarks of the Iranian unique architecture. Few cities in the world can boast, as Esfahan can, a square like the Naghsh-e Jahan, built in the early 17th century by Shah Abbas and whose fountains and gardens lead to the stunning blue tile-work and classical proportions of the Imam and Sheikh Lotfallah mosques, outstanding examples of Islamic architecture. Iran also offers a 1,500 kilometer coastline, mountains rising to 5,000 meters and a variety of climates - from the lush humidity of the Caspian Sea to the austere central desert.
