About Kermanshah

Kermanshah is the capital of Kermanshah province which is the biggest city of the Iranian Kurdish region. It is developed in the 4th century AD under the patronage of Sassanian kings. Kermanshah is situated between two cold and warm regions enjoys a moderate and mountainous climate.

We believe that Iran is a big country with a wide variety of culture, history, architecture and etc. and it is not only summarized by the classic route for tourists. The western part of Iran where Kurds live has a great potential to attract more tourists to visit another face of Iran. We chose Kermanshah for three reasons: first, it’s the biggest city in the area so that getting there is very easy. Second, all other touristic cities around Kermanshah (Sanandaj, Paveh, Ilam, Khorramabad, Palangan) are less than 2-hour drive from here. So Kermanshah can be used as a hub in Kurdish region. Third, it is very close to Parvizkhan border to Iraqi Kurdistan for tourists who go to Iraqi Kurdistan and vice versa.

By Train: Trains from Tehran are available twice a week. The train station is quite new in Kermanshah and the timetable is not stable yet. You could check online ticket selling websites.

By Bus: There are plenty of buses all around the country which have services to/from Kermanshah. You could easily find buses from major cities to Kermanshah and vice versa.

Things to do in Kermanshah

There are various things to do in Kermanshah including historical sightseeing such as Taq e bostan and Bisotun inscription which is the biggest inscription in the world, belongs to 2500 years ago and some historical mosques and Tekyes (kind of mosque). The covered Bazaar is also another attraction which is traditional and cultural where you can get familiar with Kurdish clothes, handicrafts and jewelry.

During nights you can enjoy yourself  in some good coffee shops to have a good coffee or a big portion of salad. Later at night people in Kermanshah usually go to Kuhestan park, next to Taq e Bostan, for a picnic with family and see a good view of city’s night and if you are lucky you can see some Kurdish dance with locals.

One the most important attractions of the city is its local foods and sweets. There are two local foods in Kermanshah and Dandeh Kebab is the most famous one. It is grilled lamb ribs which are marinated in a local ingredient sauce and served in a big portion. The other local food is Khosresh e Khalal, a kind of stew with almond pieces and black barberry which is served with rice. Nan Berenji, which is a sweet, baked by rice flour, is the most famous souvenir from Kermanshah. In Nan Berenji Bazzar, sellers invite you to taste their sweets for free with a smile.
