Iraq's fertile lands have seen some of the world's greatest civilizations rise and fall here as evidenced by its many archaeological sites. The ancient city of Babylon was born in what is now modern day Iraq and its remains can still be found in Iraq's Babil Governorate. To delve into Iraq's rich history, visit the National Museum in Baghdad where you'll be able to see antiquities and relics from the Babylonian, Assyrian, Sassanid, Akkadian, Sumerian and Ottoman periods. Erbil, a rapidly developing city in Iraq's Kurdish region, offers many attractions including modern shopping outlets, restaurants, music concerts and other events. The Citadel of Erbil, a UNESCO world heritage Site, is a unique multi-layered archaeological site bearing remains of various settlements including those belonging to Assyrian and Ottoman rule. For a bit of down time, head to Sami Abdulrahman Park, Iraq's largest park and a popular attraction among Erbil's population. The park's walking paths surrounded by manicured gardens and a lake, make for a relaxing experience.
