Considered one of the most cosmopolitan and westernized cities in Iraq, vibrant Sulaymaniyah boasts a strong cultural scene with a good selection of museums and educational institutions. A trip to Sulaymaniya allows you to discover one of ancient Mesopotamia's youngest cities, founded only in the 18th century. Despite its relatively brief history, the city has been the setting for many notable uprisings and revolutions throughout Kurdish history, a fact that residents proudly point out to their foreign visitors. To most travelers familiar with the rest of Iraq, Sulaymaniya feels more relaxed and liberal than any other place in the country. Plan your holiday in Sulaymaniyah and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our Iraq itinerary planner.

Where to stay
Few hotels in Sulaymaniyah offer rooms up to international standards, but the majority make up for their lack of amenities with good locations near busy bazaars and other popular points of interest. For the most luxurious options in the city, consider the hotels on Salim Street, where you can find spacious rooms with access to laundry and dry cleaning services. Farther away from this business district, you can look for smaller rooms on quiet side streets.
