Travel guide to Persepolis
Persepolis, the showcase of Darius I.
Persepolis, the showcase of Darius I.
Persepolis once was supposedly the capital of the most powerful empire on the globe. Its beauty was only rivaled by Babylon at that time, perhaps. To this day however, historians have not agreed a common position regarding Persepolis’s status as a capital. It was expanded by Darius I the Great, the same responsible for the Battle of Marathon, but then Persia was the Achaemenid Empire, whose capital was Ecbatana, apparently. Although it cannot be ruled out that Persia had more than one capital during the time of Darius I the Great. Now, Persepolis is just a splendid collection of ruined columns, piazzas, arches and remains of grand palaces, all fabulously decorated with carvings and reliefs, some of which are in a remarkable state of preservation. A truly magnificent site - of course on the UNESCO Cultural World Heritage List.

It's 55km from Shiraz. There is no public transport, but taxis can be hired for €15 for 6 hours (2h travel, 2h-3h visiting, 1h-2h Naqsh-e Rostam & other sites) [edit text]  [editors]
