A city in South-Western Iran. Probably the only major city in the country anywhere near the ruins of cities from the old empire, such as Persepolis and Firouzabad. People are generally nice and laid back. Known for its wine (which the population itself ironically isn't legally allowed to drink thanks to the psychotic government) and art scene.
That new art student in town is from Shiraz, she's got me so beat when it comes to miniatures and portraits.
