Hafezieh (The Mausoleum of Hafez)
Can you guess why Shiraz is famous as the city in which classical and romantic poetry forged ahead? Hafezieh is where young people gather and lose themselves in the poetic atmosphere of the garden surrounding the tomb of Hafez, the great Persian poet who was from Shiraz. At nights, don’t forget to walk in between the trees and try Hafez fortune-telling cards that are collected poems from his poetry book, the Divan. Hafez poems are like old Persian wines that go to your head and leave you alone with your intriguing thoughts, just like how these magical verses enchanted Goethe — spending some time in this beautiful place grants the perfect feeling of serenity to your soul.
