Erbil - Points of interest


Local market place with huge variety of stores, restaurants, cafes and attractions. Perfect to know local culture. Always crowded even at night.

Sami Abdulrahman Park

In the middle of Erbil city, very attractive park for walking, running and enjoying greens around, and you may also have a lunch or dinner in restaurants inside the park.

Citadel of Arbil

Currently being refurbished with excellent museums and cafeteria. Huge area still under construction, but well worth seeing the places that are already finished.
