Used to be beautiful until they cut most of the trees down to build soviet style concrete blocks haphazardly around the place.

As I said earlier Shiraz has been destroyed because of the destruction of all its trees no thanks to Soviet style ugly buildings and developments.

This seems to be the new compromise between Secular and Religios Iran (broadcasted from London). Too little too late ?

Didn't the rapist, world's most backward regime ruin your favourite city? IF NOT why then not a small appreciation on the regime for keeping it that beautiful?
