6 Highly “Instagrammable” Locations in Iran for Millennial Travellers


Sharing is caring!

One of the most popular social media platforms today is Instagram.

Millennials love sharing their interests on this social media platform because of its simple layout and, quite understandably so, among their frequent posts are a lot of travel pictures.

This should not come as a surprise.

Countless studies prove that this particular generation is the most travelled ever. This is all thanks to the budget travel sector that has made exploring the world more affordable for adventurous young people. And because of this, millennials have this insatiable desire to visit countries that are not the usual holiday destinations, and they enjoy sharing their experiences on Instagram.

Rising as one of the places young people want to visit overseas is Iran. The images of the palaces and mosques all over the country formerly known as Persia continue to attract young travellers. All the colors, as well as the stunning architecture and well-preserved natural environment of Iran, never fail to draw in Instagram enthusiasts.

If you are thinking of travelling to Iran and taking loads of pictures to share on Instagram and other social media sites, rounded up below are some of the best locations in the country for taking pictures:

1. Rudkhan Castle

Rudkhan Castle
This fortress is one of the best places to visit in Gilan Province and it looks like a place straight out of a fantasy film or a video game. The Rudkhan Castle is an often-overlooked destination for tourists. It rarely gets quite crowded so it’s perfect for people who want to take a lot of pictures.

This castle is mostly done in stone and it does not look so much like the elegant palaces Iran is known for. However, it possesses its own unique charm as it stands right in the middle of a forest. Trees surround it and there is even a stream with small waterfalls leading to the castle.

2. Tehran Metro

This is one of the busiest locations in the nation’s capital, but if you are in no hurry to get from one place to another during your visit, you can linger here for a photo session. The walls of the Tehran Metro are decorated with artwork.

You can see cartoons and posters depicting various themes – from political messages to inspiring teachings of the Quran. Selfies with such works of art in the background will be perfect for Instagram, and you can anticipate a highly active comment section once you post images of yourself at the Tehran Metro.

3. Gol-e Rezaieh Café

This place is a must-visit for the artsy crowd. This café has a great vibe with walls covered with framed pictures of rock stars and Hollywood celebrities.

Despite its hip interior, half of Gol-e Rezaieh’s patrons are older folks who enjoy traditional Iranian drinks and meals.

Needless to say, when you come to this café, you automatically get great photo opportunities. You can take snapshots of the interesting interior, the diverse patrons and, of course, the delicious fare they serve.

4. Pink Mosque

This iconic destination is truly an Instagrammable edifice.

This small mosque is known for producing a kaleidoscope of vibrant colors during the day due to its beautiful stained glass windows. The splash of hues on its own is already a breathtaking subject for a photo but it also makes for an artistic background for selfies.

5. Tajrish Bazaar

All the wares here are great subjects for photos – from the textiles to the glassware, ceramics, herbs and spices, and so much more. In fact, even the people that come here are worth taking pictures of.
Iranians are among the friendliest people in the world and their fashion is quite colorful and fascinating as well.

6. Golestan Palace

The grandeur of the interiors in this majestic palace is unparalleled.

It is richly adorned with intricate carvings, paintings, mosaic tiles, towering pillars, crystal chandeliers, mirrors and so much more. Practically every nook and cranny of this place is Instagrammable, making a visit to this place truly unforgettable.

Instagram to your heart’s content in fascinating Iran

There is certainly no shortage of Instagrammable locations in Iran.

So, if you are thinking of coming here, save up (perhaps even consider a personal loan for your holiday).

Explore and see as much as you can, and make sure you have all the equipment you need to take as many pictures as you like to remember your trip by.
