Where is Malta?

Updated on September 13, 2011

Before telling you where Malta is, I would like to start off by describing what Malta is. Malta is a European country that forms part of the EU. It is made up of several islands with the biggest one being Malta. Some other islands that make up Malta are Gozo, Comino and Filfla. Malta has an overall population of around 400,000 persons. The persons that live in Malta are known as Maltese. They all speak Maltese and English. A big chunk of the population also speaks Italian.

Malta is located in a strategic position as it stands between Africa and Europe, in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. Malta is located below Italy and above Libya. Malta isn’t a big country; actually it only has an area of 316 km squared. The capital city of Malta is Valletta with the largest town being Birkirkara.

Malta is widely known as a tourist resort as it provides several recreational areas but is also boasts several cultural riches with the most prominent ones being the Stone Age Megalithic Temples. They are the oldest standing structures in the whole world. They are also listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Malta also enjoys great climate as it’s sunny almost all year round. January and February are the only exceptions.
