Fridays and Saturdays

by Simone511 Online Now Nov 9, 2007 at 9:51 PM

I shall be spending a few days in Tehran, including a Friday and a Saturday. I am told that there are 'non business' days, as are Saturdays and Sundays in Australia and many other countries. I am wondering if places such as markets will be open on these two days. Basically what will be open and what will be closed?

    Many shops and businesses will be closed on Fridays, and some even on Saturdays. For example the bazaar in Tehran will be almost empty on a Friday (but it is open on Saturdays). The museums will be open though.

    dont worry about that! of course friday most of markets such as "grand bazaar" are closed ,but you can find so many of markets and you can enjoy to go some stores that are too busy in friday such as near "Tajrish square" in north of Tehran.and also pomegranate juice sellers!
    in saturday already you have no problem.
    have a good time in Iran.
