With a long-standing and proud civilization, Persian culture is among the richest in the world. Two and a half millennia of inspiring literature, thousands of poets and writers, magnificent and impressive architecture, live customs dating back to Zoroastrians over 3000 years ago, and other unique characteristics of the nation are rivaled by only a few countries. Persian culture has long been a predominant culture of the region. The Sassanid era was an important and influential historical period in Iran.
Farsi, the official language of Iran, is historically one of the most prominent languages of the Middle East and extended regions. Iranian culture is one of the oldest in the region. Islam is practiced by the majority of Iranians and governs their personal, political, economic and legal lives.
Throughout the history, this grand treasure of Persia was gradually transferred to eastern and western nations. Iran’s significant contribution to the world civilization in many respects is indispensable. Many ceremonies of the ancient Persians are the basis of western celebrations.
