The Republic of Malta, previously known as ‘Melita’ is a small southern European island country consisting of an archipelago of 3 islands – Malta, Gozo and Comino and is one of the two independent island nation in the Maditerranean. It lies south of Italy and east of Tunisia in the Mediterranean Sea. Malta's geographical location in the centre of the Mediterranean made it an attractive and high priced location to fight for, and the islands are full of majestic above – and below-ground defences. The capital, Valletta, built by the Knights of St John, is a harmonious grid, Mdina and Victoria are fortress-like hilltop towns, and watchtowers dot the coast. As the island was ruled by foreign rule by various powers, including the Phoenicians, Romans, Greeks, Arabs, Normans, Sicilians, Swabians, Aragonese, Hospitallers, French, and finally British, the food of Malta is now an intriguing blend of European, African, Arabic and British cuisine. Traditional Maltese food mixes Sicilian and Middle Eastern flavours, while making use of local ingredients such as rabbit and honey. Malta offers some of the finest Mediterranean cuisine with a rustic twist and a sprinkling of North African seasoning. The mesmerising natural beauty of the island of Gozo made Malta one of the top destination for globe trotters. A visit to Malta will enrich travellers with the knowledge of civilisations, will make them feel in love with Maltese cuisine and finally will bedazzle everyone with its natural beauty.
