Visit the city of religions, sects, and ethnicities, which is the second-largest city in the northwest of Iran. It's one of the nineteenth historical Iranian cities and it's recorded with UNESCO. Urmia is the trading center of a fertile agricultural region where fruits (especially apples and grapes) and tobacco are grown. The Urmia Segonbad building is possibly the burial place for the Jalaluddin Khwarazm shah. Stuffed grape leaves, meatballs (Kufte), Yatimcheh, curd broth among a few are traditional foods. Busty Noghl is the famous sweet from Urmia.
