A Mediterranean climate and a long, colourful history are not the only things Malta has to offer. The Southern European island nation in the Mediterranean is a member of the EU and has around 400,000 inhabitants.
Living and Lifestyle
Maltese and English are both official languages in Malta, which makes conversing with the locals quite easy. Due to the close proximity to Italy, many locals also speak fluent Italian. Those who are adverse to wintery weather will quickly learn to appreciate the climate in Malta. The sub-tropical Mediterranean climate found in Malta is characterised by mild, wet winters and warm, but not overly hot summers and boasts around 300 days of sunshine a year.
Arts and Culture
Many historical buildings, including around 350 churches and impressive temple complexes dot the island nation comprised of three islands. The baroque capital city of Valletta offers many diverse sights and is a must see on foot or by harbour tour. And within easy reach, the Sicilian coast of Italy is also a perfect destination for day trips.
