Malta is the southernmost country in Europe. It includes three large islands, Malta, Gozo and Comino, and several smaller, uninhabited. It is a popular destination for holiday trips due to the beautiful beaches and diving opportunities.
The capital of Malta, Valletta, was inscribed on the UNESCO list because of its magnificent buildings mainly from the Baroque period. You can see here, among others Grand Master's Palace, as well as many interesting churches.
Valletta is adjacent to Sliema, a modern city and popular seaside resort. There are more of these in Malta and neighboring islands. The largest include Julian's, Qawra and Xlendi. Around the islands stretch calm waters with many underwater caves and tunnels and sunken shipwrecks that are ideal for diving.
The coast of Malta, Gozo and Comino are full of picturesque places, cliffs and beaches. The most important are the Blue Grotto and the Blue Lagoon at Comino. Cruise cruises along their coastline are a popular pastime on the islands.
There are many interesting cities and monuments in Malta. Among them are the abandoned city of Mdina, Rabat with a magnificent market and defensive walls, megalithic tombs and the charming fishing village of Marsaxlokk.
