OVERVIEW
Baghdad is the capital of the Republic of
Iraq, as well as the coterminous Baghdad Province. The population of Baghdad, as of 2011, is approximately
7,216,040, making it the largest city in Iraq, the second largest city in the Arab world (after Cairo, Egypt), and the
second largest city in Western Asia (after Tehran, Iran). According to the government, which is preparing for a
census, the population of the country has reached 35 million, with 9 million in the capital.
Located along the Tigris River, the city was founded in the 8th century and became the capital of the Abbasid
Caliphate. Within a short time of its inception, Baghdad evolved into a significant cultural, commercial, and
intellectual center for the Islamic world. This, in addition to housing several key academic institutions (e.g. House of
Wisdom), garnered the city a worldwide reputation as the "Center of Learning". Throughout the High Middle Ages,
Baghdad was considered to be the largest city in the world with an estimated population of 1,200,000 people.
According to some archeologists it was the first city to reach a population over one million inhabitants.
