Tips for your Stay in Sulaymaniyah

  • The Slemani Museum is a must-see for anyone interested in the history and culture of Iraq. Located in the city of Sulaymaniyah, the museum houses a collection of artifacts that date back centuries. Visitors can see ancient pottery, jewelry, and other objects that offer a glimpse into Iraq's past. You can stay at the Ramada on Wyndham Sulaymaniyah Salim Street and be close to other nearby museums like the Amnasuraka.
  • If you're traveling in a large group, you can't miss a visit to Chavi Land Amusement Park. Chavi Land is a group fun spot located on the hill north of the central business district. To get there, you will take a cable car up the hill from where the city is displayed in front of you. We recommend you book hotel accommodation at the Grand Millennium Sulaimani, which is a few kilometers away. We recommend visiting the amusement parks in the evening. The warm glow of the setting sun makes even the most ordinary cityscape look beautiful, creating a truly stunning scene.
  • If you need a more substantial dose of scenic setting, head over to Dukan Lake, situated in a beautiful setting at the foot of the Sulaymaniyah Mountains. It is a popular spot for swimming, fishing, and picnicking. In addition to the walking and hiking trails in the area, several restaurants offer barbecues. The Dukan River feeds the lake, which magically flows down from the mountains. You can stay near the action of this spot at the nearby Ashur Hotel which is just 1.3 km away.

About Sulaymaniyah, Iraq

Surrounded by mountains, Sulaymaniyah is an attractive city in Iraq’s Kurdistan Region, not far from the border with Iran. The area was originally known as “Zamwa” before the modern city was founded in 1784 by the Ottoman-Kurdish prince, Ibrahim Pasha Baban. Between 1922 and 1924, Sulaymaniyah served as the capital of the Kingdom of Kurdistan following the collapse of the Ottoman Empire.

Things to do in Sulaymaniyah

In the heart of Sulaymaniyah is the Slemani Museum, which showcases archaeological findings from prehistoric times to the Ottoman period. Marvel at the ancient Mesopotamian, Kurdish and Persian artefacts on display, with highlights including the inscribed stone blocks in the Paikuli Gallery. In the Narseh Gallery, you’ll find large busts depicting the Sassanian king.

To learn about life in Iraq under Saddam Hussain’s rule, pay a visit to Amna Suraka, a former prison that has been transformed into a museum dedicated to human rights. Hear about the Kurdish nationalists and students who were imprisoned here, together with secret police and soldiers. Within the museum is a memorial featuring 182,000 glass shards to commemorate those killed during the 1988 Anfal campaign.

Amna Suraka lies on the edge of Azadî Park, which is a popular recreational destination for Sulaymaniyah’s residents. Centred around a duck-filled lake, it features tree-lined walking trails, a children’s playground and a skate park. Kids will love the amusement rides while adults can play dominos with the locals at one of the casual cafes.
