The ancient land of Iraq has thousands of years of history. The most valuable cultural attractions of this country are the priceless heritage of all mankind. Modern Iraq is the heir of the legendary Babylon, the ancient civilizations of the Tigris and Euphrates, a place where different cultures and religions have intertwined for hundreds of years. Fabulous Baghdad, the once picturesque “Venice of the East” of Basra, revered by Shiite Muslims Karbala and An-Najaf – all these places seem to be waiting for thousands of tourists who have come to admire the ancient buildings and delve into the history of the country.
Unfortunately, a trip to Iraq nowadays is an extreme tour for the desperate. The echoes of the 2003-2011 Iraq War have not subsided to this day, the civil war has been going on for how many years. Many areas of the country where there are interesting sights (Mosul, Kurdistan province) are occupied by terrorists and rebels. The tourism industry in Iraq is not developed at all, no one guarantees security to a foreigner, since the government does not control many territories of its state.
