Map Iraq - Country Information
Map of Iraq - The map of the Republic of Iraq depicts a country located in western Asia that spans the northern part of the Arabian Desert, the eastern part of the Syrian Desert, and the northwestern part of the Zagros Mountain Range. Iraq was long known in the west by the Greek term "Mesopotamia," or land between rivers, and has been home to various civilizations since before 6000 BCE. The area between the Tigris and Euphrates RIvers, which is a significant part of the map of Iraq, is also known as the "Crade of Civilization." Most of the map of Iraq is made up of desert terrain; however, the alluvial plains around both the Tigris and Euprates Rivers are very fertile. The north of the country is quite mountainous, and the map of Iraq is bordered by Turkey in the north, Syria to the northwest, Iran to the east, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia to the south, and Jordan to the southwest. The Iraqi region has been controlled by various empires over the ages; including the Sumerian, Assyrian, Babylonian, Parthian, and Roman Empires, among others.
