Visiting Herat Citadel is one of the musts. The historical architecture and combination of building materials are unique. Inside the Citadel, you will visit a museum of historical elements. There, in Herat you find kind hearts and hospitality among the citizens. Most of the times there are festivals held inside the Citadel which will make visiting there more exciting with life cultural and local musics.
