Malta is a small country but one that played an important part in the History of Europe and the world because of its strategic position in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. You are sure to discover just that in the Maltese architecture and landscape when you visit the main islands of Malta and Gozo but specially in the Maltese capital, La Valletta, or Victoria in Gozo. On top of all these reasons to catch the first plane or ferry to Malta, this country is very easy to travel to, since it is a part of the European Union.
