Baghdad is a colourful city with a rich history that dates back to the 8th century when it was established as the capital of the Abbasid Caliphate, thanks to its advantageous location on the caravan route between Asia and Europe. Following its inception in 762, the city, located on the Tigris River, fast evolved into one of the Islamic world’s most significant cultural, commercial and intellectual centres and many years later, in 1921, became the capital of newly independent Iraq.
Today, Baghdad remains a hub for learning and commerce and attracting both local and international visitors for this purpose. At the same time, its captivating history is reflected and preserved in each one of its many attractions, from museums and shrines to mosques and souks, all juxtaposed by modern-day malls and affluent retail districts such as Karrada, where upmarket boutiques and lively restaurants line the streets.
