Helmut Berger plays the title role as a loner tormented by unrequited love for his cousin, Empress Elisabeth of Austria Romy Schneideran obsession with the music of Richard Wagner, and excessive state-funded expenditures.
Great hostel with a family feel. Tabriz Darya Guesthouse Well located, close to the city center. If you're getting a taxi here, make sure you say Daraya Guesthouse, not the Hotel. Its not online, but there are not many places to stay around the area so they will know where it is.

Kerman Omid Guesthouse Omid is cleaner than most budget guesthouses. Close to the Sikh Temple, banks and restaurants. Plus it has a kitchen you can use. Not as simple as it should be! Before you go to Iran, be sure to stock up on cash.
Ferdowsi Square in Tehran has the exchange shops with the best rates. The currency in Iran, the Rial, has a few too many zeros —Rials is just 15 USD — and the local people have come up with a somewhat ingenious, somewhat confusing, often frustrating way to get around this. Most prices are quoted in Toman; with one Toman being equal to ten Rial.
This gets rid of one of the pesky zeros. Iranians are, in general, very honest and hospitable people. If you want to carry a fair bit of cash safely on your body, your best bet is to get hold of a backpacker belt with a hidden security pocket.
Below are a few of my favourite places to check out when backpacking Iran. With a fascinating labyrinthian bazaar and more carpets than people, Tabriz is freezing in the winter and often boiling in the summer.
There are a few houses offering a basic place to sleep and a super posh hotel carved into the rocks complete with in-room jacuzzis. More information coming soon. Kandovan, Osku, East Azerbaijan. One day, they botched a job… failing to kill Ghengis Khan.
You will need to hire a car to explore the Alamut valley in one day. Ovan Lake, Alamut Valley, Qazvin. A popular hub for the young and beautiful, this is a place of risky fashion statements, underground culture and fascinating history.
The Golestan Palace is one of the most striking buildings in the world and should not be missed. If you can get hold of a car; driving in Tehran is a great experience. The Roof of Tehran is a unique place to kick back with a none alcoholic beer in the evening and meet local Tehranis.
There is one hostel I know of in Tehran — Seven Hostel — but it is also very easy to find a local host who will show you around.
Outside of Tehran, there are multiple ski slopes, Dizin is the best known, which offer some of the best value skiing in the world. About a two hours drive from Tehran lies the city of Qom. A reader of the Broke Backpacker recently offered up this awesome travel tip regarding accommodation in Qom: The owners speak English and are incredibly helpful.
It kinda feels like a couchsurf stay as they gladly invited us to their home for breakfast. They also have cheaper dorm options.
I spent a few days hanging out in Ser Velat village, reachable from Ramsar. Shomal offers the best value accommodation in all of Iran and you can pick up super plush villas with soaring balcony views for as little as 50 — k a night.
Whilst staying in Ser Velat, I ate in a small local restaurant — Khale Marzie Restaurant — which had some of the most incredible food I have ever tried. There are no shops in the village and this is the only restaurant, bring supplies. At the top of the village, there is virgin forest and pristine meadows where you can chill out and soak in the views.Using this scale, in September of I assess my abilities as in the following table.
Although it appears that I can read a great many languages, the majority of them are closely related historical dialects of one another and belong to only two families, which in essence constitute for me only two languages, i.e., Teutonic and Romance.

Humanly speaking, it was one of the worst decisions I have ever made. Feb 02, · I wrote my thesis in 5 days, basically using this method. I had all my figures and results beforehand, and I also had all my citations organized (bibtex). After that I slept about 4 hours a night and worked 18 hours a day.
I mostly did it in about 2 weeks and so did/do many students at my university in Croatia (admittedly, a rather poor university with usually not particularly high criteria for master’s thesis) - unlike most of these students I “even” wrote it .
