There are ten more bridges in Isfahan, Iran, but Siosepol is the longest stretching the total length of 297.76 meters (976.9 ft) and looks more appealing at night.

There you have it the 5 Best Places in Iran. To add more facts, did you know the meaning of the Iranian flag colors? As shown, the flag has three equal horizontal bands of green, white and red. Well, the explanation to that: Green represents growth, White for honesty and peace, and Red express bravery and martyrdom. The center is actually a representation of the word “Allah” and “La ilaha illa Allah” which means (None is worthy of worship but Allah) and is customized to a shape of a tulip. The inner edges of the green and the red band are actually 22 copies of the phrase “Allahu Akbar” (God is great).
This proves that the Iranians are all worshipful to their god, Allah.
