Geography
Isfahan province is adjacent to the provinces of Markazi, Semnan, Fars, Kohgilouye, Yazd, Khorasan, Khuzestan, Chaharmahal-Bakhtiari and Lorestan. This province consists of desert, mountain and river attractions and geographically is considered one of the most important regions of the country.
Isfahan is located on the main north–south and east–west routes crossing Iran, and was once one of the largest cities in the world. It flourished from 1050 to 1722, particularly in the 16th century under the Safavid dynasty, when it became the capital of Persia for the second time in its history. Even today, the city retains much of its past glory. It is famous for its Persian–Islamic architecture, with many beautiful boulevards, covered bridges, palaces, mosques, and minarets. Naghsh-e Jahan Square in Isfahan is one of the largest city squares in the world and an outstanding example of Iranian and Islamic architecture. It has been designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The city also has a wide variety of historic monuments and is known for the paintings, history and architecture.
Situated at 1,590 metres above sea level on the eastern side of the Zagros Mountains, Isfahan has an arid climate. Despite its altitude, Isfahan remains hot during the summer with maximum degree typically around 40 °C. However, with low humidity and moderate temperatures at night, the climate can be very pleasant. During the winter, days are mild while nights can be very cold.
