Got Iran & Tourist map 2004 from a friend sending it from Tehran, along with local province and city maps in interest. They all costed about 1-2 dollars there, while in web shops you pay more than 30+$ or so for them.

So if you're looking for cheaper solution on maps maybe buying them from Iran is more proper way...

Cheers, Margus

Margus,
Are the maps which are posted from Iran English or only in Persian language? Is it possible to find English map in Iran?

Mine are bold-english & small-persian hybrids, so you can use some local people for recognizing names etc, very helpfully conducted maps. I think Iran is about to complete decent tourism infrastructure in near years, most of political steps seem to prove it (visa now easyer to get, airlines working worldwide, lot sightseeing information spreaded etc). Can't wait when it get's Carnet-free indeed...

Those maps were bough from some library in Tehran, so i'd say they are availalbe there.

Cheers, Margus
