Teheran-ro (translation: “Tehran Boulevard”) is a street in the Gangnam district of Seoul, South Korea. It runs from Gangnam Station through Yeoksam-dong and into Samseong-dong. It is colloquially known as “Teheran Valley” (after Silicon Valley) due to the number of internet-related companies operating in the area.

In 1977, the Seoul Metropolitan Government suggested that the cities of Seoul (the capital of South Korea) and Tehran (the capital of pre-revolutionary Iran) exchange the names of streets on the occasion of the visit to South Korea of Gholamreza Nikpey, the Mayor of Tehran. The following year, Samneungno street was renamed Teheran-ro, which then ran through a relatively underdeveloped area that been annexed into Seoul in 1963.

To this day, there is a “Seoul Street” in Tehran, Iran.
