Travel to Iraq

The Republic of Iraq brings out the beauty of the Middle East. It features about 60km of coastline to explore, has ancient cities which offer unique landscapes, and celebrates its role in being the birthplace of several of the world’s oldest civilizations. The Assyrians and Babylonians both originated here, as did part of the Ottoman Empire.

Traveling to Iraq can be a challenging experience. The shifting political climates can turn what was a safe area one day into an unsafe area the next day. As a general rule, avoid political or religious discussions during a stay and remain cautious at all times.

While in Iraq, a visit to Hatra must always be on the agenda, if possible. This ancient city was founded over 2,300 years ago and would become part of the Parthian Empire. The ruins are plentiful, with many columns and entire buildings still standing. There isn’t a better example of a Parthian city than this one, even with recent damage to it.

The ruins of Ancient Babylon are also quite impressive. Although the site has experienced certain setbacks over the past decades, its overall structure and complexity is still proudly on display.

Nineveh is also an impressive sight to behold. The city, which was founded 8,000 years ago, served as the capital of ancient Assyria. For decades during its peak time, it was the largest city in the world. Many of the notable structures have been restored and give visitors a glimpse of one of the most impressive cities in the ancient world.

Iraq may have challenges, but it also has many rewards. Take time to plan this adventure and it could be a truly amazing experience.
