The nature has a profound impact on urban form of historical cities. This study investigates the influence of river running through the historical part of Rasht city in Iran. As the main objective, we attempt to find the relationships between the morphological parameters of the fabric next by the river. Integrated with a quantified statistic, a sampling approach for both sides of the river is carried out. The results show that certain attributes rule the morphological aspects of sampled blocks where paths are ruling wizards between them. Orienting North- South paths, blocks are linear with small size grain. In East-West orientation, one can find a homogenous distribution of urban grain in blocks. In addition, it is revealed that geometry of parcels correlates with urban blocks and nearby path.
