The cradle of ancient Mesopotamia, Iraq offers a fascinating historical heritage. To admire some of the most important remains, embark on a journey of exploration around Baghdad. It’s there, a little over 60 miles from our 4 star hotel in Baghdad, that you can discover the ruins of the legendary Babylon. Formerly famous for its hanging gardens, it is one of the major archaeological sites in the country. From our hotel, only about thirty kilometers separate you from other ruins of ancient civilizations, such as Ur, with the ziggurat characteristic of Sumerian culture, or Dûr-Kurigalzu, on the banks of the Euphrates, revealed by the excavations of Aqar Quf. Finally, southeast of Baghdad remain vestiges of Taq Kisra, the vaulted palace of the old Parthian town of Ctesiphon. To end the day, head to our Golden Tulip restaurant, where you will taste international specialties in a musical and relaxed atmosphere.
