Visit the ancient capital of the Persian Empire
Persepolis is a must-see for history and culture lovers. In Iran this unique place is called TakhteJamshid, or the throne of the mythical king Jamshid. In Persepolis the most important ceremonies took place, in splendor and pomp. The Persian Kings of Kings, including Xerxes and Darius, had impressive palaces built there. After the conquest of Persepolis by Alexander the Great, this ancient capital fell into disrepair. The museum and the excavations give a good picture of the glorious history.
