The Republic of Malta, a history-rich small archipelago in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, and one of the smallest countries in Europe with an area of just 316 km² (122 sq mi), boasts a warm climate, numerous recreational areas, and architectural and historical monuments, including three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum, Valletta, and seven megalithic temples, which are some of the oldest free-standing structures in the world. The archipelago consists of three main islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino, of which Malta is the largest island.
In just a kilometre or two, you can try a new sport, laze on an island cruise and tour the most important historic sites, and still have time to join in the nightlife. That's the real advantage of a stay here.
Though Maltese is the official national language, English is considered the second language and is spoken throughout the island. In addition, Italian, French and German are also widely spoken. The Euro is the local currency in Malta.
