Walk on clay city in Iran
• Walk on clay city in Iran
Yazd Yazd or - one of the most ancient cities of Iran, built mainly of mud houses (speech about the historical center). Mention of the city appeared in the III millennium BC. e. Being away from the historical capitals, Yazd was able to avoid severe damage, so that in the city there are many monuments and cultural relics of ancient times.
unanimously liked the most from the trip to Iran I Yazd. In it, we spent three days. And not because the night in authentic hotel we paid for only 190 rubles per person (including breakfast!). Just an incredibly interesting city.
Today, a tour of the old clay roof Yazd.
This is our hotel. Just like ours, only abandoned. Here is the layout of the standard classical mansion. At the heart of a garden with trees, swimming pool, fountain, flanked by tables or ottomans. Under the dome, we had a restaurant, and on the sides of the garden rooms were located - close, yet cozy.
The main thing - is to find a way to the roof. The simplest option - it is up to the "viewing platform" of the hotel, at the entrance of which there is a sign "roof view" or "top roof view". We climbed free, giving a return postcard with Moscow views.
On the roofs of Yazd you can walk for a long time. Most of the houses are close to each other and have the opportunity to jump from one roof to another. The main thing to watch where you step - some areas are falling apart under their feet.

Clay City is famous for its wind towers. Wind towers or windcatcher designed for cooling air in residential areas and reservoirs.
Many buildings in the center of curves and crooked, with frightening cracks:

Evening clay city is beautiful:
Taking a walk through the old bazaar, I found an open door with access to the roof. I also remember it was damn hot. I got up and went towards the hotel. I walked somewhere for half an hour, climbed from roof to roof, somewhere it was easy, but somewhere easy. So I walked until I ran into the street. We had to go down, but that's all the doors were locked.
So I spent about an hour in the hot sun until you got through some apartment. These are the hills:
It was an earthen city of Yazd in Iran.
