Rasht is a city in the north of Iran around 40 kilometers from the shore of the Caspian Sea. Rasht is known in Iran for its beauty and its parks. People for all around the country come there to experience much wetter and colder climate than the rest of the country. All in all Rasht and it's surroundings offer a starkly different experience from southern Iran.
There are a few daily flights from Tehran. Most of these depart either early in the morning or late afternoon. Seeing the Alborz mountains from the air is quite an experience. There is a direct flight to Dubai
Like everywhere in Iran Rasht is well connected with Tehran and neighboring towns by bus
Shared taxis (Savaris) ply the Caspian coast so getting to Rasht from anywhere in that area. A good choice for a trip from Tehran would be a shared taxi or bus to Chalus, a spectacular route through the Alborz mountains and then a savari from Chalus to Rasht.
You can take a taxi from Tehran to Rasht directly and it takes about 4 hours. A private taxi also is very cheap, about 40 USD.
Firstly you must go & see the area named as Golsar in the north of the city, it's the most modernized section of the city, you can find the youth roaming over there, beautiful shops & restaurants, & other occasions make you find yourself in a European country in the middle of an Asian civilization.
Golsar pronaunced golsâr (Persian: گلسار) is a suburb of Rasht, the capital of the northern Iranian province of Guilan. Golsar used to be a very small neighborhood so that a chain gate had been put at the entrance before 1979. A few security guards were always monitoring and taking care of this gate. During the past couple of decades the demand for living in Golsar raised so that the area of this neighborhood started to grow rapidly. This area of Rasht is now the most expensive place in the city to purchase a house or apartment. Golsar is filled with many shops, restaurants, boutiques and coffee shops, and is the most popular place for teenagers and young adults to meet and socialize with peers. This crowd is due to an opportunity for young girls and guys to meet each other and exchange their phone numbers for either long-term or short-term relationships.
Rasht and the surrounding towns of the Caspian province are a great place to try still-warm, walnut-filled koloocheh cookies. Look for stores selling cookies with round patterns embossed on them.
Bijan's (Gaz square) restaurant is a surprise. After having kebab for dinner all the time all over Iran this place will be welcome with wonderful italian dishes. Pasta, pizzas and meat dishes all cheap and exquisitely done.
You can buy some kind of DOOGHs, the traditional drink of the area... but [Sara] is the most famous Doogh in Iran.
The hotel Ordibehesht (off Shohada square) is a centrally located hotel offering twin rooms with bathroom for around IR 110,000 per night. The building is reminiscent of a palace in a horror movie but the rooms are all right. The reception can arrange fairly cheap taxi tours all over the area.
There are a cluster of cheap, centrally-located mosaferkhanehs clustered just south of Shahrdari Square, off Emam Khomeini Street. As with other such establishments, many of them suffer noise and cleanliness problems.
