Surrounded by Goyzha, Azmir, Piramagrun and Glazarda mountains, Sulaymaniyah is located in the north of Iraq. It is among the fastest growing cities in terms of industry, trade and tourism in the country. Sulaymaniyah, one of the 18 provinces of Iraq, is the center of culture and education in the region thanks to the namesake university.

The Sulaymaniyah Museum, which has one of the richest collections of the country with its 6.000-year old female sculpture and Hercules sculpture located near Dohuk, is also worth seeing.

The Amma Suraka, also known as Red Service Museum, is among the alternative places to be seen in the city and it is an interesting museum established to display the torture and prison conditions imposed by the Ba'ath. Eating and drinking habits are similar to those in Turkey and the people here generally have honey, cream, cheese varieties, tea and coffee.

Transportation to Sulaymaniyah City Center from Airport


Sulaimaniyah Intl. Airport

In Sulaymaniyah, transportation alternatives to the city center from the airport are very limited. Because there is no regular public transportation option, the most practical and comfortable options to be chosen are taxi, car rental or private service.

Private Service

Many of the hotels in the city offer private services to the airport, sometimes upon request and sometimes periodically. If you are staying at a hotel, we advise you to consult your hotel about this issue before your travel.


Taxis offer a comfortable and affordable transportation option to the city center from the airport. They can also be used for the transportation throughout the city. It is sometimes difficult to find a taxi at the airport and if you see another person waiting for a taxi, you might consider sharing a taxi.

For traveling in the city or even to neighboring cities, sharing a taxi with others is a common alternative used in Sulaymaniyah. With this method, you can make your travel more affordable. However, the majority of taxi drivers cannot speak English. So, it would be better if you learn from some basic words and important phrases before your travel.

Car Rental

Car rental is the most comfortable and safest transportation option to travel in the city. You can rent a car from the offices of many car rental companies located in the city and have a comfortable travel to the airport. If you wish, you can also make a reservation online before your arrival.
