Isfahan is the third-largest city in Iran.

Undeniably an ancient city, Isfahan was established around 2700 BC, then called Ispandana. From 1050 - 1722, the city enjoyed a golden age as one of the most powerful cities in the world, and, for a time, one of the largest.

Today, Isfahan is known for its beauty, wealth, architecture, and art.
