Neyshabur or Nishapur is a city in Khorasan Razavi province, east of Iran. The region, situated in a fertile plain at the foot of the Binalud Mountains, is quite pleasing to tourists in spring.

Internationally known for its turquoise, the city of Neyshabur was founded in the 3rd century by Shapur I as a Sasanian satrapy capital.

It has a generally Mediterranean climate with rainy seasons mostly in the spring and winter. Towards the west of the city, however, the weather gradually changes to a cold semi-desert climate.

Here are IRNA’s photos of the beauty of Neyshabur during spring:
