Mazandaran Province

Mazandaran province (Persian: استان مازندران, [Māzandarān]) is located in the southern coast of the Caspian Sea and adjacent to Alborz mountain range. There are large forests, green mountains and beautiful seas in many parts of the world, but Mazandarān in Iran is something different. In the mountains, plains and forests of this province, people have still preserved connection with their ancient civilization and culture. This is the land of happiness, a land whose music consists of melodies influenced by forests, seas and harvesting farm products.

Mazandarān is truly a piece of heaven whose rice fields and citrus gardens are especially notable and its caviar is a precious gift for all people across the world. Migrating birds are also in love with this land and every year in cold months, they settle in lagoons and plains.
