Bushehr a city in southwestern Iran, located on the Persian Gulf in a vast plain running along the coastal region, is the capital of Bushehr Province. Bushehr is a major fishing and commercial port. It is one of the chief ports of Iran and is at a distance of 1,218 km. from Tehran. The climate is hot and humid.

The strategic location of the city has been the main reason for the establishment of the port of Bushehr. During the 1st and 2nd Millennium BCE, the Peninsula of Bushehr was a thriving and flourishing seat of civilization called "Rey Shahr". Many relics have been found in this regard related to the Elamite era and the civilization of Shoush (Susa). These structures of "Rey Shahr" are said to be related to Ardeshir of Sassanid dynasty and "Rey Shahr" was formerly known by the name of Ram Ardeshir. Thereby through the passage of time came to be called Rey Shahr and thence Bushehr.
