Project 6060 – Lesson 41
Iran is situated in the continent of Asia and in the Middle-East region. This country is counted as one of the most important countries in this part of the world. At one time, the Silk Road passed through this land. Tehran is this country’s largest and most populous city and its capital.
There are many lakes and mountains in Iran. The largest lake in Iran and the world is the Caspian and, since it is larger than all other lakes, we call it a sea. Iran’s highest peak is Damavand, has a height of 5,671 metres and is close to Tehran. There are no mountains taller than Damavand to the west of this area.
The abundance of cultural heritage has validated Iran as one of the cultured countries. Iran’s cultural heritage includes all historical buildings, which thousands of tourists visit each year. Manuscripts, ancient coins, carpets, handicrafts etc. are also part of Iran’s national wealth and cultural heritage. Even scientists, artists, great poets and writers are also counted as part of Iran’s national heritage.
Alongside this cultural and spiritual wealth, Iran also has much material wealth. Oil is Iran’s greatest material wealth. Mines, industry, factories, mountains, rivers, forests, lakes, caviar, crops such as saffron, pistachios, amongst others are Iran’s important material riches.
