Bushehr, Port of Sinbad the Sailor



The historical city of Bushehr is one of the best preserved cities in Iran, the architecture of this city is a mixture of Iranian, East African, Indian and European architectures.

Some photos:

Unfortunately it is being almost completely destroyed, most of hundreds-years-old houses have been abandoned and no ones cares about them, as you read here: http://www.magiran.com/npview.asp?ID=1776140 the old quarter of Bushehr is called "Jasad-e ru be qebleh", they don't know what should be done about this corpse, I think they will finally bury it, instead of reviving! Of course it is too large to be a museum but they can at least repair part of it, it can be one of the best tourist destinations in Iran, like Arg-e Bam.

it says, due to poor economy they emigrated.

hope atleast they keep it the way it looks, being abandoned or not. this is a true example of persian architecture and an old city, maybe the only one left in iran after yazd

There could be many reasons, but as Sorush said, according to that link, the main reason was the economic and social problems.

I don't know, to be honest it looks like a war zone, it's old, messy, poor looking, bad condition, low standarts, no particular architecture, old quarter or not, I hope they demolish the whole city one day and rebuild it
