437 000 inhabitants
Malta is an archipelago consisting of 8 islands, located in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, south of Sicily, northeast of Tunisia, and west of Greece. The island's topography is the result of hydraulic erosion, with its highest point being Ta'Dmejrek. However, the island's watercourses are mostly reduced to intermittent streams, except for lakes like Chadwick and the River of Moses. Malta enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate with mild winters, occasional showers, and hot, dry summers.
Occupying a privileged position in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, Malta has always been inhabited by dominant maritime powers. The Vandals occupied it around 455, followed by the Ostrogoths at the end of the century. The Byzantine Empire ruled over Malta until 870, after which the Aghlabids populated it with a large number of Muslim Berber settlers for easier domination. In 1090, the Normans took control of Malta, followed by the Sicilians in 1127. At that time, the population was still predominantly Muslim, but Frederick II of the Holy Roman Empire expelled them and initiated a massive conversion around 1250. Later, Napoleon Bonaparte briefly seized the archipelago before being expelled by the British, who eventually granted independence to Malta on December 13, 1974. Today, Malta's economy is predominantly based on tourism, international trade (including maritime taxes and transshipment of goods), as well as the electronics and textile industries.
Don't be fooled by the small size of the Maltese islands: they hold many surprises and countless activities! Opt for a late afternoon cruise between Valletta and Sliema to admire the breathtaking landscape of the sunset, transforming the limestone rocks into a colorful spectacle. Explore the quaint streets of Vittoriosa's Collachio quarter and enjoy the panoramic views of the coasts of Dwejra on the island of Gozo, which are among the most beautiful in Malta. Take a boat trip to the peaceful island of Comino with its sandy beaches and azure waters, or explore the prehistoric temples of Hal Saflieni, Hagar Qim, and Mnajdra.
To stay during a language trip to Malta, you will only need a valid ID card or passport. Standard vaccinations are recommended (Tetanus, Polio, Hepatitis B, etc.), as well as having a European Health Insurance Card.
