Transfer in Iran
Iran is the country of Persian cats and carpets. The former name of the country, Persia, was given to it by ancient Greeks, and only in 1936, it regained its real name. Iran has many monuments of ancient architecture. The ruins of Persepolis, the capital of the Achaemenid dynasty, which created the great Persian empire, are particularly notable. The city of Yazd is the place where the Sacred Fire of the Zoroastrians is kept. The 8-12 thousand years old ancient village of troglodytes is also worth seeing. In Tehran, the capital city, we recommend visiting the National Treasury; its main exhibit item is the Peacock Throne, adorned with 27 thousand precious stones.
Need a taxi in Iran? You can order it by phone, through the app or website. Many popular sites are banned in the country, but there are several local mobile applications. Although their interface is in English, when you order a taxi, the message about the brand and color of the car comes in Farsi. Drivers also often speak only this language. There is such a thing in Iran as "azhans". This is how people there call small taxi service companies, which are located in residential areas and have few vehicles. You can order a car by phone and specify the needed time of the departure, but there is a high probability that there will be no free drivers. Hailing a car is easier, but more expensive. Be careful: here you can find official yellow and green taxi as well as a huge number of private taxis without any identification marks. If you are traveling alone, it is safer to choose official taxi services. There are special taxis for women where drivers can be either women or married men. When getting into the car do not forget to say "dar baste!". This will mean that you want to go without fellow travelers.
In general, taxis in Iran are cheap, as the cost of gasoline is low. Getting a taxi near railway stations and airports is, however, very expensive. All drivers go without taxi meters, so bargaining is accepted. Most vehicles are in a deplorable technical condition: because of the economic sanctions imposed on the country.
