The island of Malta is not the best known destination in the Mediterranean, but it is an incredible gem that you should really consider visiting. It has 7000 years’ worth of rich history, which is reflected in the architecture and incredible scenery all over the islands that make up Malta. In fact, many people have described the country as one giant museum, since there is so much to see and experience.
One of the reasons Malta stands out from other similar destinations in the region, such as many parts of Spain and Greece, is that its historical areas have barely been affected by more modern developments. In fact, the vast majority of its impressive and historical buildings and ruins have been preserved very well over the centuries, so it’s still possible to see them in almost the same condition they would have been in many hundreds of years ago.
