About our Isfahan news

Latest news on Isfahan, providing comprehensive coverage of Iran's third-largest city, including its rich history, vibrant culture, tourism, economy, and the challenges faced by its residents.

Isfahan, also known as Esfahan or Hispahan, is the capital of Isfahan Province in central Iran. With a population of around 2 million, it is Iran's third-largest city after Tehran and Mashhad. Isfahan is renowned for its stunning Persian architecture, grand boulevards, covered bridges, palaces, mosques, and minarets, attracting millions of domestic and international tourists each year.

The city faces several challenges, including water shortages due to drought and mismanagement, leading to protests by farmers and residents. Air pollution is also a major issue, with Isfahan often ranked as one of Iran's most polluted cities. The economy, heavily reliant on tourism and manufacturing, has been impacted by international sanctions and the Covid-19 pandemic. However, city officials are working to address these problems through infrastructure projects and environmental initiatives.

Isfahan is home to many cultural festivals and events throughout the year, showcasing its rich heritage and arts scene. The Isfahan International Film Festival for Children and Young Adults, the Isfahan Music Festival, and the Isfahan National Day celebrations are among the most notable events. The city also boasts numerous museums, parks, and recreational facilities, offering residents and visitors a wide range of activities.

Historically, Isfahan served as the capital of Persia during the Safavid dynasty in the 16th and 17th centuries, leaving a lasting legacy of stunning architecture and cultural heritage. The city's iconic Naqsh-e Jahan Square, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a testament to the grandeur of this period. Today, Isfahan balances its historical significance with its role as a modern, industrialised city and a major centre for education, science, and technology in Iran.
