Welcome to East Azerbaijan!
East Azerbaijan is the only province in Iran that is bordered by Armenia and Republic of Azerbaijan. Here is the connecting point of two main mountain ranges of Iran, Alborz and Zagros, that’s why it has cold mountainous weather. The capital of the East Azerbaijan province is Tabriz Metropolis. Tabriz is famous for its paintings and carpets.
The magnificent, labyrinthine, Unesco-listed Tabriz bazaar with carpet shops, turquoise mosaics of blue mosque, Kandovan’s troglodyte cliff dwellings, frozen water falls during winter, intact forests, visiting Shahsavan nomads in Sahand mountain and finally the UNESCO-listed ancient Saint Stepanos Monastery are all highlights of the province.
