    Main characteristics of Malta

    Malta is a small country, in fact, it is one of the smallest in Europe. But don’t be fooled by its size! Malta holds great opportunities for anyone who wants to spend the best months of their life studying English and working.


    Malta on the map

    Malta is located in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, specifically south of Europe, between Italy (Sicily is only 80 km away), Tunisia (280 km), and Libya (320 km).


    Malta in numbers

    Malta is composed of 8 islands, has a total area of 316 km2, and a total of 45,000 inhabitants.

    As a curious fact, its capital, Valletta, is only 1 km2.

    The main island shares its name with the country, which can sometimes lead to thinking that Malta is just one big island. The 8 islands that make up Malta are: Malta, Gozo, Comino, Manoel Island, Cominotto, Saint Paul’s Island, and the islets of Filfla and Filfonetta Rock.

    Of these 8 islands, only Malta, Gozo, Comino, and Manoel Island are inhabited.

    The island of Malta is the largest of them all, with 27 km in length and 14.5 km in width. In Malta, you can find the fortified capital of Valletta.


    A bit of history

    Malta’s location in the middle of the Mediterranean basin has placed it in a fundamental role in the history of humanity since early times: it is said that the first inhabitants of the island of Malta arrived from Sicily and North Africa around 5,000 BC.

    Since then, Malta has always been inhabited by different civilizations that left their mark and legacy.

    Malta has witnessed the Stone Age, the settlements of Phoenician merchants, the Greeks, the Carthaginians, and, as could not be otherwise in this game of conquests, the powerful Roman Empire.

    The Byzantine Empire, the Vandals and the Arabs, the Sicilian Normans, and even for a time Malta became part of the Crown of Aragon, becoming one of those kingdoms that helped maintain the title of the Spanish Empire as the Empire where the sun never set.

    After numerous wars with Turks and Ottomans, Napoleon’s cavalry conquered Malta…and shortly afterwards, the English reconquered it. And there they were ruling until 1964, the year in which Malta finally achieved independence, becoming the Republic of Malta.


    The climate of Malta

    Malta enjoys a Mediterranean climate, temperate throughout the year, with very mild winters in which temperatures rarely drop below 15ºC; and somewhat hot summers, with temperatures between 22ºC and 35ºC, ideal for refreshing yourself on one of its beautiful beaches.

    The hottest months are July and August. And the most pleasant temperatures are enjoyed from September to November, where the maximums usually do not exceed 25ºC.


    From Maltese to English

    There are two official languages in Malta, Maltese and English.

    Maltese is a Semitic language derived from the Afro-Asiatic languages, with a marked English and Italian influence, due to the historical presence of colonies originating from these two countries.

    In addition, due to its time as a British colony, English is the second official language of the country and is spoken by young people as well as the elderly.


    From beach to beach in Malta

    Malta is world-famous for its beautiful beaches. There are beaches for all tastes: some very prepared to receive hundreds of tourists, with their umbrellas and beach bars. But there are also more secluded ones, where you can enjoy reading a book or snorkeling in its turquoise waters.


    Very Mediterranean culture and cuisine

    Thanks to its strategic location and rich historical past, Malta enjoys a spectacular culture and cuisine with Arab, Mediterranean, Italian, and English nuances. From the architecture of its cities and buildings, in which walled cities and churches of all styles abound, to your plate, in which pasta, vegetables, and spices abound.

    Main cities of Malta
