Gozo

Gozo is the sister island of Malta. The island lies only a few kilometers away from Malta. Despite being similar the island has a different flair from Malta, besides the island more vegetation, therefore much greener than Malta.

A few characteristic comparing Malta and Gozo:

  Malta Gozo
Population: approx. 385,000 approx. 27,000
Size: 316 square kilometres 67 square kilometers
Capital: Valletta Victoria (Rabat)


Why visit Gozo?


Gozo has something to offer which Malta does not have. For example on one hand the Azure Window, a naturally formed arch on the coast. On the other hand the capital Victoria with the small romantic lanes and the large bastions, from which one has an excellent view of the whole of Gozo and parts of Malta and Comino. Then there is the beautiful beach, the Ramla Bay, and the historical temples of Ggantija. In addition the flair of the island and the inhabitants is a completely different one than in Malta.

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.

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.

Cost of living in Malta

The cost of living is comparably average. Approximately 2/3 of the products consumed have to be imported from abroad. Unfortunately, the small market allows many monopolies to emerge.
