Most historians have called Sari “the ancient city of myth” and refer to it as the capital of the orange blossoms in the north of the country.
The historical city is more than six thousand years old. People from Sari are called Saravi. The climate of Sari in the summer is mild and damp, and in winter it is relatively cold and dry.
The southern mountainous parts of this city have long and very cold winters. Historic buildings, the daily markets, parks, old neighbourhoods, and the city’s entertainment centres are among its important tourist attractions.
The most significant sources of income of rural people in this city have been livestock breeding, fishing and farming. Rice and citrus are the most famous products of Saravi farmers in the north of the country. At the beginning of the rule of Agha Mohammad Khan Qajar and before Tehran, Sari was for some time the capital of Iran, and during the first period of the Pahlavi regime, it was the first city where the construction of the national railway began.
