Birzebbugia - sothern city in Malta

Birzebbugia - sothern city in Malta

Birzebbuga lies deep in the south on the great bay of Marsaxlokk(Pretty Bay). The city is very nice and has a certain charm. Unfortunately, this charm is shadowed by the cranes of the Malta Freeport, the air traffic and the oil tanks/pipelines of EneMalta nowadays. The bay has a nice promenade which follows the whole coastline in Birzebbuga. ... more

Cospicua (Bormla)

Cospicua (Bormla)

Cospicua (Bormla) lies in front of the two peninsulas: Vittoriosa (Birgu) and Senglea (L’Isla). The city is the consequence of the overpopulation of the two peninsulas, Vittoriosa and Senglea. It was designed in 1717 and is surrounded by two fortifications. The outer one is known as the Cottonera Lines and the inner as the Margerita Lines. ... more

Marsascala

Marsascala

Mdina & Rabat

Mdina & Rabat

Mdina - the old capital


Mdina is the old capital city of Malta and lies on the south-western part of the island. You could say only a little bit in the outback. Beside it is Rabat. The population of Mdina is around 400 people. It is quite impossible that the population can increase, because the whole city resembles more a castle or fort then a city. The city lies 190mtrs above sea level (that’s quite high for Maltese landscape) and is surrounded with slopes on three sides. The city has almost the form of a square and is very strong fortified.

St. Julians is a former fishing village, but nowadays it has become one of the most famous tourist attractions in Malta.

Swieqi

Swieqi

Swieqi is a calm and also nice district/village above St. Julians and adjacent to Paceville. From Swieqi you just need between 5 - 15 Minutes by walk to the entertainment centre Paceville or to St. Julians.

Swieqi is a nice place to live. Dogs are allowed; almost everybody has at least one. The prices for flats/houses are comparably cheap. ... more

Valletta - Capital City of Malta

Valletta - Capital City of Malta

Valletta (7100 inhabitants) is a unique city. She lies on a peninsula in western Malta. The city possesses enormous fortification. The building of the city started in 1566 and was finished only 10 years after. Named after the Grand Master Jean Parisot de la Vallette. ... more

Vittoriosa (Birgu)

Vittoriosa (Birgu)

Vittoriosa (Birgu) is probably the nicest of the three peninsulas southwards of Valletta. The city was the first settlement around this area. When the Knights of St. John arrived in Malta in 1530 they set up camp in Vittoriosa and started to upgrade the fortifications, including the Fort St. Angelo. After the Great Siege of 1565 they moved to Valletta.

Birgu has nowadays a population of 3000 and the fortifications are as impressive as those of Valletta. Behind every corner you can discover something new. The best way to enter the city is through the ‘Couvre Porte’ which was restored in 2002. Above is a modern gate which breaks through the fortification of the ‘Poste de Provence’ and is used as a road for cars. ... more

Marsaxlokk and the fish-market

The market in Marsaxlokk takes place every day, but on the weekend it is the biggest - especially on Sundays. Offered are fish (only till 12 o‘clock), smaller hardware, clothes, accessories, toys, souvenirs, shoes, CDs and DVDs, fruits and vegetables, etc.

Sights in Mdina and Rabat

The whole city of Mdina is worth seeing. The city consists of many small alleys, a huge city wall with three gates, a very nice cathedral (from inside as well as outside), an observation platform (from there you have a nice view over the northern part of Malta), and much, much more. Rabat whereas is a modern city. There are also some nice sights, as the St. Paul’s Church and Grotto, the Museum of Roman Antiquities and the St. Paul’s Catacombs. While Rabat is a bit more vital, Mdina offers more culture and history. Have fun looking through the pages.

Sliema

Sliema is not really an entertainment centre, like Paceville, but more likely a recreational city.
