I loved the place. It was very quiet when I went there, so I had enough time to talk with local people. Tabriz is a romantic city and its people are really friendly.

I would suggest travellers to visit there in order to find out about azari literature and culture, specially shahriar, one of the great poets. His poems are in persian and turkish.
