The island state Malta in the Mediterranean is a tourist destination with a warm climate, numerous recreational areas, and architectural and historical monuments, including three UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Malta has temples which are the oldest free-standing structures in the world.
Althought Malta is a very small country, you can still speak of different regions here.
Main island Malta
Firstly, the busy and fully-developed north coast of the main island of Malta, where practically all tourists stay. Second, the middle and south of the main island that is less populated. The coast here consists mainly of high cliffs.
Gozo & Comino
The third region consists of the two other smaller islands: Gozo and Comino. These islands are less affected by mass tourism and have been able to preserve better their traditional character.
Valletta is the capital city of Malta and it's the European Union's smallest capital city. The city was officially recognised as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1980. The architecture of Valletta's streets and piazzas ranges from mid-16th century Baroque to Modernism. The city is the island's principal cultural centre and has a unique collection of churches, palaces and museums and act as one of the city's main visitor attractions.
