Iraq travel guide

Parks · Historic Sites · Shopping Malls
Encompassing the fertile area between the Euphrates and Tigris rivers once called Mesopotamia, modern Iraq is marked by turmoil, torn between its rich historical heritage and recent instability and bloodshed. Few tourists choose to vacation in Iraq, put off by reports of violence and destruction that have shaken the country to its core. Still, the semi-autonomous province of Kurdistan remains seemingly insulated from the chaos of the rest of the country. This small region draws a growing number of foreign travelers, enticed by the area's rugged appeal and numerous lakes, archaeological sites, and impressive mountains.
