Looking for history, nature, fresh foods, and friendly people all in one place? Then do NOT overlook this ancient city. During the Safavid era, Qazvin was the capital of Iran. That means if you take a simple walk around town, you will find many historical gates and mosques all over, along with many markets, trade centers, and bathhouses. For foodies, Qazvin’s bazaar has the best restaurants and teahouses, where you get to try its famous Baklava (filo filled with nuts and sweetened with syrup), and Nan Nazok (a fragile pistachio filled sweet). Love mother nature? Take the next taxi to the Alamut Valley and the castle of the Assassins, a must-see for hikers and photographers alike.
