The last residence of Shah of Iran and his family is another place for you to visit if you’re interested in Persian architecture and the royal family lifestyle. Located in a posh district with the same name, the Niavaran complex is worth visiting due to its whimsical nature and the historic mansions that have turned into museums. The luxurious design of the main palace with its exceptional ceiling that opens in the middle are those features that the architecture of this place owes to the Europeans. You get to see great pieces of art like those of Picasso and Salvador Dali in the Jahan Nama Gallery. Don’t forget to visit other beautiful places of the complex like the museum of automobiles, Sahebqaraniyeh Palace, and Ahmad Shahi Pavillion.
