Take a look at this natural beauty. Isfahan – the Florence of Persia, the blue pearl of Iran.
The city in the heart of Iran is the most charismatic city in the country and often uttered in the same breath as Bagdad, Constantinople or Cairo. The former capital of the Persian Safavid Empire has long since lost the status of cosmopolitan city, but it still radiates a cosmopolitan charm of which the inhabitants are extremely proud. With its Iranian and Persian national consciousness, Isfahan emits a form of comeliness that attracts people near and far. Following the 30-year-old carpet dealer Shanty as he tries to establish a business for himself and his fiancée Nina, we discover the soul of the city with mesmeric shots, intimate portraits and true to life portrayals of daily life.
