History & Architecture
Malta has a rich history, beautiful baroque citadels, ancient maritime cities and much more.
Malta’s human history begins with pre-historic peoples who built Malta’s famous megalithic temples, some of which have been dated as older than the Pyramids of Giza. Throughout the millennia the island has come under the rule of numerous nations ranging from the Romans, to the Byzantines, to the French and finally the British. Each of these left an indelible mark on the island in terms of culture, art, language and architecture. Some of the highlights which emerged from these influences are the megalithic temples, picturesque citadels, maritime fortress-cities, and collections of renaissance art.
English is spoken widely as an ofﬁcial language.
Malta has two official languages which are Maltese and English. Maltese is what the locals describe as a ‘mixed tongue’ which is mainly based on Italian, French, English and Arabic. It is a complete and unique language developed by the Maltese over hundreds of years during which the island was occupied by several nations and cultures, each of which lent elements of culture and language to the Maltese mother tongue. The majority of Maltese speakers are also able to speak English. Though the level of spoken English varies, most people either have at least a good command of the language or are completely fluent, which is hardly surprising given that the Maltese islands were a British colony up until just 50 years ago. Though it is not an official language, it is common for Maltese people to be fluent in Italian as well.
Strategically located in the heart of the Mediterranean
The nation of Malta consists of a tiny archipelago of islands in the very centre of the Mediterranean sea. There are three main islands with other smaller islets scattered around them. Two of these are inhabited, namely the main island of Malta and the smaller sister island of Gozo. In between, is an even smaller island called Comino which has just one family living on it, though there is also a hotel there. Malta can be reached by flight from most major airports in Europe, or by daily ferry from Sicily. Travelling between the Maltese islands is very easy too, with both seaplane and regular ferry connections between Malta and Gozo.
