About Iraq

Iraq is a Middle Eastern country located in the region of Lower Mesopotamia. It borders Turkey to the north, Syria and Jordan to the west, Iran to the east, and Kuwait and Saudi Arabia to the south. While it has a brief coastline along the Persian Gulf, Iraq is often described as a landlocked country, due to its limited access to the sea.
Iraq is the third-largest country in the Gulf region in terms of land area. The country has a rich history and has been home to some of the world's oldest civilizations. Arabic is the official language of Iraq, but Turkish, Kurdish, and Syriac are among the other languages spoken in the region. Iraq's population is a diverse mix of Arabs, Kurds, Turkmen, and Assyrians. The majority of the population is Muslim, with 60% being Shiites and 40% Sunnis. Baghdad, the country's capital, is among the smallest in terms of land area, yet it boasts the largest population compared to other cities.
Other major cities in Iraq include Mosul, Kirkuk, and Karbala. Karbala holds special historical significance in Islamic history as it is the place where Imam Hussein, the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad, was martyred by the Umayyads. Shiites commemorate this event every year on Ashura Day.
Iraq is one of the most significant countries in the Middle East, partly due to its strategic location and its vast oil reserves. It is the second-largest holder of proven oil reserves globally, following Saudi Arabia. After experiencing a drop in oil production following the 2003 U.S. invasion, Iraq has been working to rebuild its economy and restructure its oil industry. Besides oil, Iraq's fertile lands are used for agriculture.
The country's cuisine bears the influences of both Arab and Kurdish cooking. Lamb, regional spices, rice, and bulgur are frequently used ingredients in Iraqi dishes. Popular food items include kebabs, rice dishes, and pastry-based desserts. Fast food is widely available across the country. 
Iraq's climate varies because of its diverse geography. Summers are hot, dry, and without clouds, while winters are cold and dry, occasionally below freezing. In central and southern areas, summer temperatures can climb to 50 degrees Celsius, and desert areas can experience dust and sandstorms. While most of the country is flat, the northern mountains near the Turkish border get heavy snowfall. If you prefer milder weather, consider visiting Iraq in the spring.
Iraq has several international airports, such as Baghdad International Airport, to welcome travelers from around the globe. It's important to note that certain areas in Iraq may have dress code rules, especially for women, in accordance with Islamic customs, which may involve wearing more conservative attire.
