Place Bandar Bushehr

Bushehr, Booshehr or Bushire , also known as Bandar Bushehr , previously Antiochia in Persis and Bukht Ardashir, is the capital city of Bushehr Province, Iran and a port city in south of Iran. At the 2006 census, its population was 161,674, in 40,771 families. Bushehr lies in a vast plain running along the coastal region on the Persian Gulf coast of south-western Iran. It is built near the ancient port city of Rishahr . It was the chief seaport of the country and is the administrative center of its province. Its location is about 1,218 kilometres south of Tehran. Bushehr has a desert climate.
Bushehr was the main trade center of Iran in the past centuries. The city structures are traditional in style, modest in proportion and cost. Due to its lack of rail connection to the interior of the country and its shallow anchorage, it has lost its position as the primary port of Iran.
