TEHRAN – The Iranian pavilion at the prestigious Expo 2020 Dubai was praised by visitors, CHTN reported on Saturday.
Visitors are invited to soak up the ancient land in terms of rituals, crafts, cultural heritage and travel destinations. The pavilion also reveals more about medical tourism, new startups and the beaten track.
The pavilion is intended to showcase the strengths and assets of each Iranian province in terms of tourism, cultural heritage, crafts, as well as its natural sites, traditional ceremonial practices and historical significance.
The World’s Fair opened Thursday with a lavish ceremony of fireworks, music and messages about the power of global collaboration for a more sustainable future.
Many countries and companies are also looking to the exhibition – the first major global event open to visitors since the coronavirus pandemic – to boost trade and investment.
According to the organizers, the Expo, an exhibition of culture, technology and architecture under the banner “Connecting minds and creating the future”, should be a demonstration of ingenuity and a place where global challenges such as climate change, conflict and growth can be tackled together.
The Persian Gulf state has relaxed most coronavirus restrictions, but the Expo requires face masks to be worn and visitors over 18 to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or tested negative for COVID- 19.
Iran hopes to reap a boon from its many tourist sites such as bazaars, museums, mosques, bridges, public baths, madrasas, mausoleums, churches, towers and mansions, 26 of which are listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
