Introducing Baghdad


Baghdad stands out for its diversity, and was the world’s largest and wealthiest city during the High Middle Ages, when the population grew to more than 1 million. Today, unfortunately, this glorious historic city is suffering badly the effects of war. It is still possible to see some important, well preserved sites, however, you should check with your country’s foreign office regarding the security situation before planning a trip here. This magical Middle Eastern city continues to rise from its ashes just like a simurgh.
