Map of Tehran, Iran
At the bottom of this page you can find a good map of Tehran and its surrounding areas, as well as a good road map of Tehran. I hope they`re what you`re looking for!
Tehran is the capital city of Iran, as well as its largest city by far. It is also one of the largest cities in both the Middle East and South Asia, with a population of 8,429,807 in the city proper.
Tehran is in the Middle East, so maybe people imagine it as being in the middle of the desert surrounded by rolling sand dunes. But the Middle East is a place of variety, and Tehran is actually not in the desert. It is indeed hot in the summer, but is definitely cold in the winter with daily highs in the range of 7-10 degrees celsius, and daily lows often falling below 0 degrees. It is a city of many hills and varying elevations, and the higher elevated areas in the north part of town can be significantly colder than the lower lying areas. Spring and winters are mild, with most of the year`s precipitation occurring in those seasons.
Tehran is served mainly by Imam Khomeini airport, which lies a good 50 km outside of the city. The old international airport is still used for domestic flights and military use.
