Iran is a tall land of the Middle East. The real geographic boundaries of Iran had to be found at the end of the slopes of the high mountains that surrounded it all around. If, as before, we see the three continents of Asia, Europe and Africa, which once were also parts of the great body of Gondwana, Iran is a land right in the heart of this collection. The relative position of Iran is Southwest Asia. Just southwest of the Iran, behind the Arabian Peninsula, borders the north-east of the Africa across from the Red Sea to Asia. In the northwest, Azerbaijan, Armenia and Turkey are joining Iran to Europe, and it is interesting that in the south-east, from the Oman Sea, one can find a direct route to Australia through the Indian Ocean.
