Bridge in Esfahan, Iran: Once one of the largest cities, it is still known as “half the world.” The beautiful ancient architecture and monuments are thousands of years old, have been well preserved and are still in use today. It is now a site for international investors and has also served to link Armenian Christians with a famous Islamic square. Hundreds of traditional handicraft shops are connected together nearby.
