Russian tourist fascinated by Iran

Moscow, May 31, IRNA - A female Russian tourist says she changed her viewpoint on Iran after visiting this country and understanding the culture and beauties of the great nation.

Lidia, who traveled to Iran along with her family, came to see an exhibition at the East Nations Art Museum in Moscow to watch Iranian artworks on Monday.

The Russian culture-loving woman told IRNA that she visited Iran accompanied by her husband Yougni and that she was thrilled by the magnificence of the country.

"Everywhere in Iran, we encountered rich culture and enjoyed it," Lidia said, noting that seeing how the Iranians are trying to protect the rich culture is very pleasant.

They arrived in Tehran and then continued their trip to Shiraz, Isfahan, and Yazd, where they could experience tourist attractions in these cities.

Answering a question on her view before visiting Iran, she said that they thought there are some cultural attractions in the country, but they did not think to see numerous fascinating places around the state.

She went on to say, "Given negative propaganda against Iran, we did not think that we will see so many beauties."

"When we arrived in Iran all interpretations changed and we saw how high-level is the culture of the country and how good are the people," she said, adding, "The Iranian foods were very delicious and Iran is in fact a museum under the open sky."

After the end of the coronavirus pandemic, she is determined to visit Iran once more. There are many Russian people who are loving the ancient country and will visit it yet again.

An exhibition of Iranian Art of the Qajar Dynasty is displaying 300 artworks at the East Nations Art Museum. The fair is being held from May 15 to July 25.
