Projects in Tourism

 TOURIST AND RECREATIONAL SECTOR

 

God granted Thi-Qar governorate a natural distinction: the presence of open shallow waters (marshes), and these areas are regarded among the most beautiful of the world’s areas. They can be a great center for attracting tourists due to the enchanting nature and other distinctions. This place has now become the focus of most international companies that hopes to invest the nature of these shallow waters to set up large tourist resorts.

 

Also, the governorate is full of a large number of archeological sites the most important of which is the ancient Ur city southwest of Nasiriyya city which includes the Sumerian Ziggurat, one of the oldest relics in the world. The date of its building goes back to the dawn of the Sumerian ancestry 6000 years ago. This city also includes the house of Prophet Abraham (peace with him) which is located near the Ziggurat. This place in particular is regarded as a tourist magnet due to being regarded as holy by most Unitarian religions.
