This week we visit: Malta
Malta is a tiny island country in the Mediterranean which has seen cultures and nations come and go and which has become a fascinating mix of all of them (and then some). It is a wonderful summer destination with amazing beaches, picturesque towns and some of the most interesting customs and cultural events in the world.
Here are the 3 things that you simply must see if you decide to pay Malta a visit.
The Walled Town of Mdina
Mdina used to be the capital of Malta and it is easily one of the most stunning towns in all of the Mediterranean. It is a medieval town which is entirely encompassed by huge walls and accessed by a single castle-like entrance way.
The town is riddled with the tiniest, most atmospheric streets that you will ever see and you never know what you might find behind the next corner. The city itself is also quite tiny, with around 300 inhabitants only.
The Grand Harbor
The Grand Harbor is a spectacular natural harbor which has been fortified over the years and which has seen more historic events than many countries have, from Arab and Crusader conquests to important roles in both world wars.
It features dozens of individual forts built in various periods, as well as palaces and promenades which will provide you with perfect scenery for walks and photography backgrounds.
The Blue Lagoon is situated between two smaller Maltese islands of Comino and its islet Cominotto. The bay features some of the clearest, most intense waters in the world made possible by the whitest sand you will ever see.
It is a truly one-of-a-kind spot in the Mediterranean and something that you need to see and experience for yourself.
