  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    An island nation within the Mediterranean Sea just south of Sicily, Italy, the country of Malta is actually an archipelago, although only three of the largest islands are inhabited: Malta, Gozo, and Comino. The country has been heavily influenced by North Africa and Arabic cultures over the years, although there is a hint of Sicilian that weaves throughout as well, and there are few countries in the world which combine such an abundance of history, architecture, cultural, and ethnic diversity into such a tiny area.

    From the Neolithic temples to the ancient ruins showcasing such influences as Greek, Phoenician, Roman, Arabian, Norman, French, British, and beyond, the islands have a rich history dating back over the centuries, with prehistoric ruins dating back to the 4th millennium B.C. The country is a recent addition to the European Union, having just gained official membership in 2004. It was a colonial part of the British Empire until 1964, when it gained its independence. As a Mediterranean island the culture, the climate, and the cuisine are all typical of the region.

    Public transportation is reliable, but extremely expensive. Your best bet for traveling to the island is to either rent a car or a scooter/moped, as taxis can tear into your budget quickly. Since the islands are so small, it's fairly easy to get around. The easiest way to get between the islands is via the ferries, which run every 45 minutes like clockwork, even in the winter. The official language is English, although Italian is fairly understood, and the locals also speak Maltese, which is an odd blend of Arabic, Italian, Hebrew, and Amharic. While there is official Maltese cuisine, most of the food you will come across is distinctly Mediterranean.

    Malta is the perfect place to experience a quiet Mediterranean holiday. The islands are safe and easy to traverse, meaning they are perfect for all levels of travelers. Summer months are exceptionally hot, so if you aren’t a beach-fiend who thrives on scorching temperatures, avoid the summer months when the temperatures are at their highest.
  • British Cultural Infusion You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: redplanettravelboss  

    Malta gained Independence in 1964, and the Queen of England was head of state until 1970. This is very recently in the grand scheme of things.

    English is an official language and you will be hard pressed to find someone that doesn't speak English. This makes it a popular place for British holiday makers and expats alike.

    Visible relics of the British period are clearly visible on a daily basis, and most Maltese are proud of their connections with Britain.

    Driving on the left, zebra crossings, red phone boxes, double yellow lines and even UK-style car tax discs are all reminders of the previous Imperial administration.

    Whilst the food is mainly clearly of Mediterranean influence, the local beer (try Farson's blue label), pastizzis and even Mr Whippy Ice-cream vans have got their parentage somewhere else.

    Points of Interest near Malta

    Looking for important things or something to do or a place to go see near Malta? Here is our list of options.

    Filter By Tags:

    • Mellieha
      Mellieha is located at the North of Malta, and is one of the key tourism towns on the Island. It houses quite a few hotels, cafes etc and one long sweeping beach with a good amount of cleaner water. The beaches are maintained during the tourists seasons, which means they are cleaned daily, however outside of tourism seasons they are usually left untouched.

      One of the lesser known attractions of mellieha is the small wildlife sanctury found at the edge of the town, it is the only area designated purely for protection of birds, and as such security is tough, though it is open to tourists and schools at limited times of the day. Whereas its not the only designated 'green space' (even football stadiums in Malta are given this designation) it is a sign that conservation in Malta may yet be starting.
      Mellieha, Malta
    • Bugibba
      If Qwara is the new then Bugibba is the old. Located towards the very Northen tip of Malta, it is one of the 'old towns' in the transition towards tourism. There are many tourist sites across Malta, however the effects are less evident here. Whereas there are still tourist shops and hotels present, the development has not been as heavy.

      The rocky beaches that surround the towns borders are preferred by the locals, as they need less management then other sandy beaches across the island (these are only managed seasonally). However due to the majority of the rocky coastline being flat many locations are suitable for sunbathing. However, there is a small sandy beach at the head of St Paul's Bay.

      The square of Bugibba holds many cafes and places of interest, however, this is a trade off as developments are becoming more tourist based. The square becomes a hive of activity after dark with numerous bars, clubs, karaoke bars attracting the locals as well as the tourists. There is also a Bingo hall and Casino to try your luck in.

    • Mosta
      Mosta is one of the inland towns of Malta, located a short distance North West of Valetta. Mosta is a busy township and also a market town.

      The most noticeable attraction of Mosta is its grand church. This church boasts the broadest unsupported dome in the World, with an internal diameter of 37.2 meters and walls nearly 9.1 meters (30 ft.) thick. making the church a marvel of architecture. A WWII bomb hit the roof of this church but failed to detonate, as a tribute to the church's survival a replica of the bomb can be found near the church. This acts as the main tourist pull to the town.
      Mosta, Malta
    • Mdina
      Mdina is the old capital of Malta whose earliest inhabitants date back to 4000 BC. Mdina is approximately 10km from Valletta. The fortified and walled town is known as the "Silent City" due to its narrow and quiet streets. Most of Mdina's palaces serve as private homes. The impressive Cathedral of the Conversion of St Paul is fronted by a large square .

      Commanding a magnificent view of the Island, Mdina maintained a strategic position on the island due to its central location, highest point on the island and its distance from the sea and due to its location can be seen for miles.

      Currently only city residents are allowed to bring their cars within the city gates, which lead to the calming affect described by many visitors. Mdina is definitely a pedestrian's paradise.
