The impressive Citadel has three main quarters – Saray, Taki and Topkhana, and you’ll find the city souk here where you can buy everything from smartphones to Kurdish crafts.  While you’re in the Citadel, the Kurdish Textile Centre is worth seeing for gorgeous antique rugs and a good gift shop where you can buy high quality locally-made souvenirs.  Shopping is a popular pastime in the city, which will appeal to many who book flights to Erbil. Throughout the city you’ll discover designer brands, antique stores and speciality shops in the Family Mall, Majidi Mall, Hawler Mall and several others. 

Explore the unique culture and history of the city during a visit to the Syriac Civilisation Museum or the Erbil Heritage Museum. Be sure to take a look at the magnificent Central Mosque, or plan a visit to Minaret Park to see the 118 ft (36m) tall Mudhafaria Minaret which dates from King Muzaffar Al-Din Abu Sa’eed Al-Kawkaboori’s reign at the end of the 12th century.  There is also a beautiful turquoise tiled minaret nearby.

Take the cable car from Minaret Park to Shanidar Park for exciting views over the city, or enjoy a coffee in a street cafe as you watch the world go by in a city that is one of the world’s oldest and most interesting.
