Stanislaw Warwas (Poland):
Susa is not as spectacular as Persepolis but still has a lot to offer for tourists and archaeologists. The city is easy to reach from everywhere in western Iran and can be combined with a trip to Chogha Zabil and Shushtar. Being there, do be in a hurry, just let your imagination recreate the pre-Iranic civilizations of Elam.

Reza (Tehran, Iran):
Susa had been one of the most important cities of our world for thousands of years, and its a big shame that it is so ignored in our time. It is without any doubt one of the wonders of the world, and a great heritage from human's past, and in our modern world, and the age of communication, it is being ignored. Yes, I have visited this site, it is amazing, and there is still so much history left there to uncover. As an Iranian and a member of global village I look forward that this site is introduced to the world by UNESCO as world heritage site...
