The official delegation of Bashkortostan, headed by the Head of the Region, Radiy Khabirov, visited the Niavaran historical and cultural center in Tehran, one of the tourist attractions of the capital of Iran.
The complex has five buildings: Niavaran Palace, Ahmad Shah Pavilion, Sahibkaraniye Palace, Jahan Nam Museum, and Library.
The palace was built for royal ceremonies, but later it became the residence of the second king of Iran from the ruling Pahlavi dynasty, Mohammed Reza Shah. The total area of the center is 9 thousand square meters.
The guests also visited the Ahmad Shah pavilion, with an area of 800 square meters. It was erected in 1910, at the end of the Qajar era, as the dwelling of Ahmad Shah. The interior of the building is decorated with decorative items made of silver, bronze, ivory, and wood. Here are souvenirs from different countries.
The delegation of Bashkortostan visited the specialized automobile museum of the Niavaran complex. It opened in July 2013. Cars of the Pahlavi family are exhibited here and have the status of relics.
Radiy Khabirov noted the positive experience of the Tehran city authorities, who preserved the unique complex for visitors in its original form.
"This country is a paradise for tourists. We will actively develop this direction. Despite everything, I have always had a task so that the residents of Bashkortostan can travel to different countries, including Iran, and get acquainted with the sights. Of course, this contributes to the possibility of direct flights in comfortable conditions. We do all this, among other things, when we develop international relations with friendly countries," said Radiy Khabirov.
