Although Tehran is not Iran, without this great metropolis, which is the focal point of Iran’s transportation network and the center in which more than 40% of the nation’s economic activities take place, it would not be possible to fully comprehend the ever-changing Iran. Tehran is the mirror of Iran. Those who inhabit this young metropolis have come from around the country with different beliefs, cultures, languages, and lifestyles and live in a national and international context together. It can be noted that modern societies take form in large cities, and therefore, Iran’s future is being formed in Tehran.
Iran is a complicated and mysterious country and Tehran is more so. Activities, population, and cultures have shaped a new and ever-changing logic upon which people relate to one another without prior familiarity. This phenomenon, despite being problematic, expands and facilitates innovations and creativity.
