Head of Iran’s Cultural Heritage Organization said that in the first nine days of the New Year holiday 13,209,442 people have visited the country’s historical and cultural sites.
Masoud Soltani asserted that some of the visits have been made free of charge.
He also added that in the same period 34,300,000 people have been accommodated overnight on their holiday trips.
The accommodation has included hotel rooms, rented houses, camps, and classrooms.
He stated that since many visits have been made free of charge and therefore with no record, the real number is much beyond the official one.
