Iran 98   - Perseopolis

42km northeast of Shiraz lays a famous ruins Takt- Jam Shied, better knows under name of Perseopolis. The best is to take early morning bus to Marvdast and then go by taxi(5000r/os). Entrance fee is as usual 10 000r. When Alexandr Great recognized that Perseopolis is more beautiful than Acropoli in Athens decided to burn up and destroy it.

Only ruins remains. Everybody can visualize how beautiful and huge it was before.

Cuneiforms on stone walls and animal sculptures are showing that we are not in Greece but on some moreless mystical place.

Only a few columns from "Hall of 100 columns" survied....
