The climate of Isfahan (Iran)
Isfahan is located west from central Iran in the Isfahan province on the banks of the Zayandeh Rud River at the foot of the Zagros mountain range. The Zayandeh Rud River is one of the few rivers in Iran that doesnít dry up during the summer. The river flows into Lake Gavkhuni which is situated southeast from the city. Isfahan is a very old city, remains of civilization have been found dating back to the Bronze Age. Because of its rich history the city is very beautiful with many old churches, cathedrals, mosques, bridges and palaces. The large Meidan Emam or Iman square is one of the largest in the world and is a Unesco world heritage site. On this square several of the most beautiful buildings in the city can be found such as the Ali Qapu palace, the Sheik Lutfallah mosque, the large bazaar of Isfahan and the mosque of the Shah. In the center of the square several large fountains can be found. Isfahan has a warm steppe climate with dry and hot summers and cold to very cold winters. Winters are cold here because the city is located at an altitude of 1,500 meters in combination with a cold wind that mainly comes from the north. During the winter average temperatures are around freezing point. However, during the coldest days of the year temperatures will plummet far below freezing point. During the winter most precipitation falls and snowfall is not uncommon. Summers are very warm with temperatures easily rising up to 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit). Because hardly any rain falls during the summer humidity figures are low.
