Erbil

3.5

Hawler

The capital of Iraqi Kurdistan, Erbil occupies perhaps the longest-inhabited land in the world, with the earliest human settlement here possibly dating back to 5000 BCE. Centered on its ancient and World Heritage-listed citadel, the city blends old and new, retaining some of its long-established architectural and cultural charm in its grand bazaars and minarets, while adding a number of modern malls and nightlife haunts. Trips to Erbil remain a safer option to visiting other areas of the country--they also provide a chance to get to know a diverse local population proud of their tolerant and fast-growing city. Take stress off the schedule by using our Iraq trip planning tool.
