Mdina, which is also known as “The Silent City”, is an ancient capital of Malta, about 4000 years old. The city is located on a top of the hill from where you have a stunning view of fields and villages around. Visiting Mdina is similar to using a time machine that takes you ages back. You will enjoy exploring the paved narrow streets, beautiful churches, ancient monasteries and glorious palaces.
Rabat is a popular tourist destination in Malta due to the town’s rich history and a large number of historical sites ranging from famous catacombs to age-old churches. It is also known for its multiple holy places, primarily associated with Saint Paul, who is Rabat’s patron saint. In addition to its narrow, yet camera-friendly, medieval streets, typical for Malta; the town offers plenty of green space, thus differentiating it from many other Maltese towns.
Sliema is a former fishing village, nowadays known as the most popular and fashionable year-round resort in Malta. It is a rather small Mediterranean town, crowded more with tourists than with locals. The resort offers plenty of dining, shopping and accommodation options, while providing a fast access to Valletta landmarks, since Sliema faces the city, located on the other side of the harbor.
The Three Cities is a common name for the trio of fortified Maltese boroughs: Vittoriosa (or previously Birgu), Senglea, and Cospicua. Being originally maritime settlements, they played a great role in Malta’s commerce and culture development. Today the Cities’ inhabitants are sincerely proud of the long history and rich heritage they received from the past as the locations they live in can be fairly considered as the history cradle of the island.
In the South Eastern Region of Malta with the Grand Harbour on its Eastern coast, the Malta’s capital and its major gem city, the fascinating Valletta is located. Some European noble families, amazed with Valletta’s terrific buildings, churches, gardens, and bays, gave it the name of Superbissima, meaning the Most Proud. And the City really deserves this name.
As it is said on Malta, all roads in Gozo go to its capital, Victoria, or Rabat as it is often called by locals. The city consists of the antique Citadel town and old Rabat town. Nowadays the population of Victoria amounts to about 7000 people. The island capital received its name in 1887 when the jubilee of the Britain’s Queen Victoria was celebrated.
