Mid-spring, May 5th, has been named as the National Day of Shiraz in Iran as it is rich in cultural events and historical monuments.  

Besides, the green inspiring nature of Shiraz, specifically the scent of orange flowers, during Ordibehesht (April and May) has made Shiraz, the capital city of the Fars province, a treasure trove of Persian culture.

Shiraz is the fifth most populated city in Iran and is located in the southwest of Iran. It has a moderate climate and has been a regional trade center for more than a thousand years.

Shiraz is known for its poets, literature, garden, history, culture, cypress trees and orange blossoms. It’s one of the best destinations to travel and have memorable experiences.

Eram Garden, Afif-Abad Garden, Tomb of Hafez, Tomb of Sa’di, Jameh Mosque of Atigh, and Persepolis are among the historical, cultural, and ancient sites of Shiraz that are of interest to domestic and foreign tourists.

Every year on Shiraz Day, different ceremonies are held in this city, but this year, due to the outbreak of coronavirus, the historical, cultural, and literary places of Shiraz refused to host people.

Almost all Iranians love Hafez poetry which is soaked in deep sense of humanity echoing ranges of historical events, biographical descriptions, and details of life in his hometown, Shiraz.

Hafez is most famous for his Divan and among the many partial English translations of this work are those by Gertrude Bell and H. Wilberforce Clarke.

To get acquainted with the historical and cultural monuments and places of Shiraz, and enjoy these interesting and fascinating programs, just come and see.
