Are you planning to explore the truly magnificent and ancient city, Mdina? Here we have some interesting facts you might not know about this unique metropolis.
The capital city of Malta and UNESCO World Heritage Site, Valletta, has so much to offer its residents and visitors. The capital was established in the 16th century, by the Knights of St John. Primarily it was known for its museums, churches and palaces, however, nowadays, it’s also becoming a hub for high-end entertainment such as boutique hotels, lounges, shopping and fine dining restaurants.
The Maltese capital has an instant charm that may remind you of Venice and maybe even Prague in one fell swoop. Dripping with charisma and oozing an undeniable historical vibe, it is a place where baroque charm comes to life before your eyes.
To the northeast of Malta resides Sliema. It is beside the town of St. Julians. The town used to be where Malta’s upper-class and aristocracy resided. Yet, today the area is most popular for its shopping centers, bars, restaurants, and hotels. The town got its name from a chapel, which was built in dedication to Stella Maris in 1855.
On the island of Malta and north of the capital Valetta, visitors can find the town of St. Julian’s – or San Gilijan – famous for its fun-filled daytime activities and a hotspot for nightlife. Though the town is small, with a population of about 8,000, its Paceville area abounds with luxurious hotels, a variety of restaurants and many trendy nightclubs.
Valletta is more than just a Mediterranean capital city. The principal city of the stunning island of Malta is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and even knowing the status doesn’t stop visitors from being charmed by the surprises around every corner.
