Baghdad is the capital of Iraq and the second largest city of the Arab world. Located along the Tigris river, near the ruins of the ancient Akkadian city of Babylon and the ancient Sassanid capital of Ctesiphon, Baghdad was founded in the 8th century and became the capital of the Abbasid Caliphate and the Caliphate’s most notable major development project. Within a short time, Baghdad evolved into a significant cultural, commercial, and intellectual centre of the Muslim world. This, in addition to housing several key academic institutions, including the House of Wisdom, as well as hosting a multiethnic and multi-religious environment, garnered the city a world-wide reputation as the "Centre of Learning".
