 History

Undoubtedly, since the beginning of human life in the coastlines of the Caspian Sea, they were dealing with the sea and building the boats, large ships and yachts to cross the sea in order to trade and be close to other people and benefit from marine resources. Sailors were interested in Anzali Port for two reasons: 1. the natural position of Anzali Port and canal; 2. Geographical position of Anzali Port and its proximity to the commercial centers of Guilan province.

In 1927, under the management of Russia, this port was handed over to the state authorities. In 1922, the first ship was brought to Anzali from Europe by Germans. In 1895, the construction of Ghazian's breakwater with a 750-meter-length and of Anzali's breakwater with a 520-meter-length started. In 1914, the constructions of these structures finished.
