Knightly Weekend on Malta

If you want to turn back time and feel what it was like to live in the medieval Europe, you can make your dream come true by visiting Malta – the most knightly island in the world. Besides, you can combine your chase of historical heritage with lying on the beach and meet the yachts returning from The Middle Sea Race. Narrow streets without a single tree, huge domes of churches will carry you through the centuries to the Malta of the past.

The most interesting historical part of Malta is Valetta which is included in the list of UNESCO. Its streets and squires remained practically unchanged since the sixteenth century. Here you can visit St. John’s Co-Cathedral with the tombs of knights, or the Palace of Great Magister or walk along Republic Street (which is, by the way, the souvenir paradise for tourists) to the St. Elmo fort. You should also have a look at Mdina, the old capital of Malta. It seems that the time has stopped in this town forever. The gourmets will also find something interesting on Malta as this island is rich with sea products. Tasty local fish is called lampuca, another dainties are squid and cuttlefish which you can taste sitting in one of the numerous restaurants on the seafront.
