On the shores of the Persian Gulf lies the beautiful city of Bushehr. This city is one of the most important Iranian seaports and a great destination for travelers visiting Iran in the fall and winter as Bushehr’s hot and humid summer temperatures turn into a pleasant warmth in the colder months of the year.

Rey Shahr is the ruins of an old Elamite city named Liyan, which was rebuilt by Ardashir I (180-242 CE) the Unifier, the founder of Sassanid dynasty. The city was once an important literary and scientific center where countless books were written and housed in its libraries.
