Best things to do and see in Iraq

Iraq flight deals will allow you to experience many traditional holidays and events that celebrate historical milestones. You can enjoy cultural events such as Assyrian New Year, held annually on 1 April. The festivities are marked by long parades in colourful and ancient costumes and dancing in the streets. If you would like something more contemporary, you can try the Babylon International Festival on 22 October. It represents different cultures and civilizations through music and arts and is a great way to preserve tradition and pass it on to the next generation. The Iraq Short Film Festival showcases great movies in the Kurdish and Arabic languages and is held in August and September. Many of the holidays and events held in Iraq are centred around the country's historical battles. Army Day in January, Ceasefire Day in August and Iraqi Independence Day hold great personal weight with the locals and are celebrated in earnest with appropriate fanfare. The Muslim communities also observe religious holidays such as Eid al-Adha.

Iraqi cuisine is one of the oldest in the world, and with your flight deal to Iraq, you will be immersed in a world of flavours, spices, and heady aromas. One of the oldest traditional dishes that is consumed around the world is biryani. But when visiting Iraq, you will get to try it in a different style, called Iraqi Biryani. It consists of slow-cooked rice with different meats and is usually served as a main meal. Bamia is a traditional lamb dish that is stewed with spices and okra. The Iraqi locals love the mince-meat dish kheema, and meat kebabs, made from various meats, are commonly enjoyed. Another highly popular dish is dolma. It is considered one of Iraq's national dishes and is essentially a meat-stuffed onion loved by the Iraqi people. Kanafeh is a popular pastry dish made with rose water and syrup extracts and served as dessert.

Iraq is one of the oldest and most beautiful countries in the world. It is referred to as the Cradle of Civilization with reference to the ancient Mesopotamian cities famed for their innovations in medicine, theology, law, and science. For this reason, the country has some incredible historical attractions and natural wonders to see on your holiday. Visit the 7000-year-old city of Erbil and see the magnificent castle that is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Some impressive mosques are well worth seeing, such as the Imam Husayn Shrine in Karbala, a highly popular pilgrimage site for Muslims and the burial site of martyr Husayn ibn Ali. Other heritage sites include the temples of Hatra, with some of the country's most amazing architecture. For a more relaxed time in a friendly town with plenty of trendy eateries, a thriving art scene and welcoming shops, try a visit to the Sulaymaniyah region. The Babylon region still holds many ruins and artefacts from the days of Alexander the Great, and the Arch of Ctesiphon dates back to the 7th century, still carrying much charm from those ancient days. With regards to nightlife, years of imposed curfews saw Baghdad's nightlife enter a quiet phase. Still, it has re-remerged, and nowadays, residents enjoy outdoor cafés, bistros and a game of backgammon or dominoes on the sidewalk. Summer is a great time to visit and soak up the friendly atmosphere.

When visiting Iraq as a British citizen, you will need to obtain a visa upon arrival. You can only enter the country via the cities of Erbil and Sulaymaniyah. You will need to show proof of sufficient funds, a return flight, and the reason for your visit. Your passport must have one blank page and have been valid for at least six months.
