“The Road To (Or From) Turkey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2011

We are keen viewers of UNESCO World Heritage sites, and sometimes we add a couple to our personal list retrospectively. This is one such example, as this eighteenth century bazaar was only added to the list a few months back.

Tabriz is a major city on the road from Persia to Turkey and so its market has been a place where the two culture zones mingle. Many of the traders in this Iranian market are ethnically Turkish. You can buy everything here from hand-tailored shoes and clothes to dates and nuts. One of the advantages of Iran's isolation is that shopping is not the 'multinational' experience it is in many parts of the world. There are a lot of hand-made products and local delicacies here. The brick-vaulted architecture is also very attractive. Most older structures in earthquake-prone Tabriz have been destroyed.

“Interesting to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2004

Tabriz in Iran is a historical city with many interesting historical places to visit which one of them is Tabriz Bazaar (market). It is a very old covered market which has not changed much and still works the same way as its earlier times. Many people go there for their shopping and you can find almost anything in there. By walking through bazaar one feels that he is walking through a living museum.

Please feel free to contact me if you wish to know more about Tabriz.
