Under religious tutelage since the 1979 Islamic Revolution that brought the mullahs' regime to power, Iran has long remained closed to visitors. The apparent relaxation of the regime since President Rohani came to power has led to a thaw in the country's relations with the West, as well as a slight recovery in tourism. The human rights situation, however, remains dramatic. The heritage, culture and architecture of Iran, a flagship country on the Silk Road, are the stuff of dreams. The sprawling Tehran, the mountains of Alborz or the island of Kish, playground of the golden youth, the remains of the ancient city of Persepolis, the peaceful shores of the Caspian Sea, or the picturesque villages of the desert ... Iran offers multiple faces and a diversity often overlooked. Its people too: the silhouettes of women in chadors stand out on the blue mosaics of the mosques, while the groomed young people are typing on their smartphones around the shopping malls of big cities. Elsewhere, time seems to stand still in the mountain villages, where people live to the rhythm of the harvest. If the country seems to be opening up a little, one must nevertheless remain vigilant as to the conduct to be followed, limit oneself to the most "tourist" circuits and imperatively avoid the border areas. However, Iran borders Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq and Turkey, and the geopolitical instability of the region does not allow for an adventurous trip in all serenity.
