PANK Amusement Park

Not terribly 'cultural', but it seems terribly interesting...

The only amusement park in all of Iraq - definitely good for some laughs with locals and any soldiers on leave.


Ride at PANK - Anna Wachtmeister

The country’s only operating amusement park, called PANK, stands proud on a hill-top plateau not far from Erbil. A returnee who made enough money importing rice to Sweden while in exile built the park. It attracts visitors from all across country, guaranteeing a secure and fun place for the whole family. You can stay the night in a small bungalow. The selection is limited but does include a helicopter ride if you are lucky to be onsite when the helicopter is there. The views are always magnificent.
