Rasht Overview

Rasht is the capital of Gilan province in north of Iran. It's also the largest city on Iran's Caspian Sea coast as local people called it the capital of north.

There are many groups of people living in Rasht, like Gilaks, Persians, Azeries, Taleshis and more. So the people speak different languages. But many of people can't speak English well and it's a problem for tourists. Sincerity of people solves this problem, as many of tourists confess to it.

Rasht is known for its famous building of municipality located in a square named "Meidaane Shahrdari" meaning "the square of municipality" which was constructed circa 1900 but being renovated each year.

"Sabze Meydan" meaning "the green square" is another attractive place of Rasht. It looks like a park more than a square, located in downtown of the city and there is a library in the center of it.
