Malta – The Fortress of the Mediterranean

This is Europes fifth smallest country in regards to land area. Malta is located at a central part of the Mediterranean and has for centuries been an important harbor in the area’s trade. Malta consists of three inhabited islands – Malta, Gozo, and Comino.

We visited the island for the first time in 2019 (Jesper had alone earlier in 2011 and 2012) and were able to enjoy a week of exploring several of the old fortresses and towns.

Population: 0.5 Million
Capital: Valletta
Language: Maltese, English
