Malta - A Perfect Destination For Travelers To Visit
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

The Republic of Malta is a small and densely-populated island nation in Southern Europe. It is made up of seven islands, which definitely makes it an archipelago. This island country has warm climate, and winters here are not as cold as other countries in Europe and the summers are really hot. If you plan to visit Malta in summer, make certain that you're ready for warm, dry breezes and do not expect rain to fall during this season.

The main languages spoken in Malta are Maltese and English. English being their second language means tourists will have no trouble asking for directions when they find themselves lost in the streets. In fact the Maltese archipelago was once a colony of Britain, hence that's why the nation's official second language is English and a lot of international organizations hold summits and important meetings in this archipelago.

The national currency formerly used in Malta was the Maltese Lira. Yet, the Euro became the country's prime currency in the year 2008. Before taking a stroll in the streets of Malta, assure that you exchange your pocket money to Euro or you'll have trouble transacting any sort of business during your stay in this country.

Actually almost 98 percent of the total population in Malta is Roman Catholic, one of the highest Catholic populations around the world. For this reason, there are many cathedrals and churches scattered all throughout this archipelago, for example the San Lawrenz Church in Birgu, the Gozo cathedral, the Mosta Dome and many others you may want to visit in Malta.

The major mode of transportation here in Malta is bus. Car hire is also available yet using public transportation vehicles is not bad as almost every place in Malta could be reached by bus. What's more, ferries are also frequently used to get around in the island country, especially in the summer. If you plan on hiring a car, remember that you should drive by British standards, which suggests that you should drive on the left and the steering wheel is on the right side of the automobile.

Based upon the above information, if you show some interest in visiting the charming Mediterranean island country, just come here and you are certain to enjoy yourself fully during the stay in Malta!
