Plenty of shops for souvenir and species for you to select and also allow you indulge a lazy chilly day coffee at one of the shop - Peace Coffee run by a newly wed, lovely and warm couple.

Esfahan nakş-i cihan (Half of the world). You can understand the meaning of this sentence when you come to Imam Square. A nice place to see with history and real life. Bazaar is full of very interesting things for tourists. You can find anything of your interest.

This square is really beautiful, the buildings are arranged symmetrically round the square (mosques, palace, bazaar), there is cooling water and you feel like you are in another world. For the best view climb to the top of the palace.

This Roayal square can be compared with other beautiful squares in Vienna, Paris. Pictures will prove it. Beautiful Sqaure, mosque, bazar. Visit and buy enamelled coper vessels, table covers, spices. Specialy layered spices. Food is delicious. Miniature paintings are maybe expensive but negotiate. Visit Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque at 12:00 when is visible "peacock" at the roof.
