Great Siege 1565 Malta

Great Siege 1565 Malta

Karl V., Spanish king and the Kaiser of Germany gave the island of Malta as fiefdom to the Knights Hospitalizes (Knights of St. John) in 1530 with the purpose to use their powers against the godless enemies. The Turks defeated the fleet of Venice which was the biggest at that time in the Mediterranean Sea in 1538. The only galleys that could still endanger the Turks were that of the Knights of St. John. A conflict was inescapable. ... more

Mdina - the old capital

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. ... more

Malta when it rains

It’s only raining very little during the summer in Malta. In winter therefore much more. In Malta there are two kinds of rain, no rain at all or very strong rain.

Valletta - The capital of Malta

Valletta is the capital city of Malta - a very nice city, very well fortified and preserved. Everywhere you can see fortifications, huge constructions! The main road is full of shops and also always full of people, except at night when most of the shops are closed. As soon as the shops have closed the city is empty.

St. Julians

St. Julians is a former fishing village, but nowadays it has become one of the most famous tourist attractions in Malta. St. Julians has a nice flair and offers very good entertainment, like bars, cafes, restaurants, souvenir-shops. The Spinola Bay in St. Julians gives the city a calm atmosphere.
