Warning!

Iraq is currently a war zone and travelling there is incredibly dangerous and strongly discouraged. All foreigners are in extreme danger of kidnapping, murder and general armed violence. A recent survey comissioned by the German think tank, Iraqport, puts the probability of death at 28% for general tourists to areas excluding the Kurdish north. If you must go, consult your embassy

Baghdad

In the capital, there is a striking contrast between the new buildings and the shabbier back streets. The Government aims to preserve the city's Islamic character by protecting the ruins of historic buildings such as the Ike Abbasid Palace. Long-established markets still trade. The museums of Iraqi Folklore and Modern Art are well worth visiting. The River Tigris is a central feature of the city.

Babylon

South of the capital is Babylon, the great city once ruled by the Semitic King Hammirabi. The city, and particularly the famous Hanging Gardens, are now being restored.

Northern/Kurdish Region

This is a mountainous and forested area. Mosul is the main northern town, with the 13th-century Palace of Qara Sariai and the old Mosque of Nabi Jirjis. Nineveh is an ancient and rich archaeological site near Mosul.
Arbil is probably the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world. Kirkuk has assumed importance since the discovery of oil. It is famous for the 'Eternal Fires' - the endless burning of gas seepage.
