Capital of the Gilan province, Rasht is a major city in the Caspian Sea region. It is a distribution center of agricultural products from fertile lands in the north of the country, and a main transportation hub between the Caucasus, Russia and Iran; thus, a major trading center.
A lively and active life style is apparent in the trade activities all over the city in the daytime, and in the busy restaurants, movie theatres, and crowded streets in the city center at night.

Rasht's Bazaar

Rasht is known for its unique cuisine, particularly its seafood and its traditional rustic life style. This can be best observed during the day in its open air bazaar, with its many small food stores and vendors from surrounding villages offering fresh produce, eggs, live chickens and ducks, olives, fish... and shoppers busy bargaining in the packed alleys in the baazar and adjacent streets.
