IranBook - 1999
For more than three millennia Iran, or Persia as it was formerly called, was a melting pot of civilizations. Under Cyrus the Great, Persia was the centre of the world's first empire which stretched from the Mediterranean to Pakistan. Subsequent invasions by the Greeks, Arabs, Mongols and Turks have imbued the nation with an amazingly rich cultural and historical diversity.
