Iraq General: 16 reviews and 13 photos

 
 

Favorite thing: take some days for Mossul. In the are you will find several excavations of old Mesopotamian cultur: Ninive, Khorsabad, Ashur, Nimrud.
But Mossul itself is worth a visit as well. The people who live there are quite different from the Baghdadis. Mossul is located in the north of Iraq where a large quantity of Kurds lives, even other ethnic groups live in the mountains but only in very few numbers.
The people of Mossul are a mixture of the Arabs and others from the south + Kurds and others from the north.

Fondest memory: pic shows: view over the Tigris with Mossul on the western banks
