Archeology, history, love, poetry and the perfume of roses are the ingredients of Shiraz. This city of roses and nightingales, hosted two of the greatest Iranian poets (Saadi, 13C and Hafiz, 14C) and is located in south-western Iran. Celebrated as the heart of Persian culture for more than 2000 years, Shiraz today is Iran's sixth most populous city. Being one of the most important cities of the medieval Islamic world and the capital of Iran during the Zand Dynasty (1747-1797), many beautiful buildings were built or restored as: Vakil bazaar (18C), Vakil hammam (18C), Shah Cheragh mausoleum (8th century), Nasir al-Molk mosque (19 c.), Masjede-Atiq (9 c.), Orange grove (19 c.)
