Tehran is the capital of Iran (the 32nd national capital of Iran) and home to over 13 million Iranians, the most populous city in Iran and Western Asia and has the third-largest metropolitan area in the Middle East.

This city has more than half of the country's basic industries such as electrical, textile, automotive, cement, chemicals and other industries, as well as many theaters, schools, universities, parks and museums.

The Grand Bazaar
Right in the heart of the city, the Grand Bazaar is an essential visit for any tourist in Tehran. With over 10 kilometers (six miles) of labyrinthine alleyways filled with covered shops, haggling customers, and general commotion, you will find everything from jewelry to carpets and pots and pans for sale here. One of Tehran’s oldest areas, this commercial center is teeming with history and character, and there are some exceptional restaurants dotted around. Prepare for a sensual bombardment; not for the agoraphobic! Be sure to check out the nearby Jomeh bazaar for antiques, every Friday on Jomhuri Street.
The bazaar in the northern district of Tajrish is smaller, prettier, and altogether less stressful than the Grand Bazaar (although prices are higher). There is a colorful market of fresh fruit and vegetables, and some excellent touristy shops selling traditional crafts and kitschy memorabilia. Check out the kebab restaurant in the center of the bazaar, and the teahouse just off the main drag. It’s also worth visiting the stunning adjacent shrine, the Imamzadeh Saleh.

The Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art
The Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art boasts the most extensive (and valuable) collection of artworks outside Europe. Although some items have not been exhibited since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, works by big names including Picasso, Monet, Andy Warhol, and Henry Moore are on display, as well as pieces by Iranian artists. The building itself, inaugurated in 1977, is a striking modernist structure, and a great place to meet young, artsy Iranians.
Located in the most northerly reaches of the city, Jamshidieh is a large park in the foothills of the Alborz Mountains. Fresh air and lush surrounds are enough to merit a trip to this out-of-the-way spot, but the outstanding views of the city below are what makes it a must-see. The higher you climb, the better the views become, but if you don’t feel like a hike there are plenty of nice spots for picnicking and drinking tea. It is particularly picturesque in the winter months, when it often receives the first snowfall of the year.
Mount Tochal sits in the mountain range to the north of Tehran, with its peak reaching a staggering 3,993m (13,000ft).

If you lack the time or inclination for the trek, a telecabin service will take you all the way up the mountain for a reasonable fee.
