    With a very rich history, Tabriz used to house many historical monuments. Unfortunately, many of them were destroyed in repeated invasions and attacks of foreign forces, negligence of the ruling governments, as well natural disasters such as earthquakes and floods.

Tabriz Warnings and Dangers

  • farimas's Profile Photo

    by farimas Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Due to Islamic culture and kind moral of our people, amount of crime and Unsafety is absolutely low and you will have quiet and pleasure vacation. One important point that every tourist should consider is observance and preservation of Islamic rules such as veiling women's hair (called 'he-jab'), not drinking alcohols and especially not disturbing Mesdames. I think respecting to these rules cause tranquility and inner healthy either for people or for tourist. Don't you think so?
