What: Stairs of Peace

Where: Deir Atieh, Syria

A group of students painted this staircase as part of a community project aiming to spread joy and happiness to the residents in the town. The main motivation behind this project: Syria today is the land of blood not colors, so we are trying to make a little difference for love and peace in the war zone”.

2) Tehran, Iran

What: “Pele Haftom”- Stair Number 7

Where: Vali-e asr Ave (Tehran, Iran)

Not much is heard about who created this flowery street art but if you do want to see this, you might want to consider going soon. Renovations happen pretty often over there, so these beautiful steps might be gone by the time you plan to visit Tehran.

3) Beirut, Lebanon

What: Massad Stairs

Where: Mar Mikhael (Beirut, Lebanon)

An iconic staircase for tourists, artists and residents, the Massad stairs was under threat of getting destroyed as part of renovation works in 2013. The residents of Mar Mikhael held a strong protest against the demolition of these stairs and that is the reason why the stairs are still currently around.
