ABOUT THE COUNTRY

Malta consists of a group of islands in the Mediterranean.

 

It is the 10th smallest country in the world, and the capital Valletta is the smallest national capital in Europe. The people are friendly and welcoming, and Malta is a mix of modern 21st-century trends and unchanging traditions.

 

Inhabited since about 5900 BC, it has changed hands numerous times with Carthage, Rome, Byzantium, Arabia, and Britain all possessing it at various times in its history, leaving behind traces of their heritage and culture.

Malta balances the ultra-modern with the ancient; the Ġgantija temples predate the Egyptian pyramids; on the other hand, a stint as a European capital of culture in 2018 saw an infusion of the latest trends in design and architecture.

Malta gained independence from Britain in 1964, and 10 years later became a Republic, with the President as head of state. It is a member of the commonwealth as well as of the European Union and the Eurozone and numerous other bodies.
