General Information About Malta

 

The small and densely populated island nation, Malta is an archipelago of five islands all combined together in the Mediterranean Sea. This Southern European country lies to the south of Sicily, east of Tunisia, and north of Libya. Malta is a permanent member of the Commonwealth of Nations and is a member of the European Union since the year 2004. Malta has a mixed climatic condition with mild, rainy winters and hot, dry summers climate . Malta exudes character, from its vibrant blue waters and secluded bays, to medieval walled citadels and splendid baroque churches. Year on year, visitors flock to Malta's striking coastline, enjoy plates of fresh seafood, and explore the many historic buildings and colourful traditional villages that speckle the landscape.
 
Situated in the centre of the Mediterranean, the Maltese archipelago includes the islands of Malta, Gozo, Comino, Comminotto and Filfla. These sunny islands have been described as one big open-air museum, and it is easy to delve into Malta's mysterious prehistory, retrace the footsteps of St Paul, or see where the Knights of St John defended Christendom.

The Maltese archipelago is situated in the centre of the Mediterranean, with the largest inhabited island, Malta, lying 93km (58 miles) south of Sicily and 290km (180 miles) from North Africa. Gozo and Comino are the only other inhabited islands. The landscape of all three is characterised by low hills with terraced fields. 
 
Malta has no mountains or rivers. Its coastline is indented with harbours, bays, creeks, sandy beaches and rocky coves. Gozo is connected to Malta by ferry and is more verdant, with many flat-topped hills and craggy cliffs. Comino, the smallest island, is connected to Malta and Gozo by ferry and is very sparsely populated.

History
Malta is home to the oldest free-standing buildings in the world: The Ggantija Prehistoric Temples date from around 3600 BC (1600 years after man first stepped foot on the Island).
 
The Phonecians colonised in 1000 BC giving it the name Malat, meaning refuge. The islands then came under the rule of Carthage and Rome, and it was in AD60 that the New Testament records that Saint Paul was shipwrecked on an island, believed to be Malta, on the shore of what is still known as Saint Paul's Bay.
 
Arab rule then followed for the next 200 years, and was responsible for the introduction of orange and lemon trees on the Island, and the building of irrigation systems and dry-stone retaining walls still visible today. The latinisation of Malta followed in 1194, with the Kingdom of Sicily ruling and populating the Island for the next 440 years. 
 
In 1530, Charles V handed over the Island to the famous Knights of Malta, who made it their domain, and Italian its official language; they built towns, palaces, churches, gardens, and fortifications, and enriched the island with important works of art and enhanced cultural heritage. The Great Siege in 1565 is arguably one of the most important events in Maltese history, when the Knights' nine-thousand-strong army, which included many Maltese civilians, defeated a prolonged Ottoman Empire attack by some 40,000 men.
 
The Knights reigned until 1798, when Napoleon evicted them on the way to his Egyptian campaign. French occupation lasted only two years, until the Maltese asked the British for assisitance and Lord Horatio Nelson forced the French to surrender. It was following this, in 1800, that Malta voluntarily became part of the British Empire.
 
Malta remained under British occupation during both World Wars and susatined much damage during World War II, with King George VI awarding the George Cross (the highest civilian award for gallantry) on 15 April 1942, "to the island fortress of Malta - its people and defenders". Gaining independence in 1964 and becoming a republic in 1974, Malta finally said goodbye to British Forces in 1979. Today, Malta has achieved full membership of the European Union. 
Language
Maltese (a Semitic language) and English are the official languages. Italian is also widely spoken. 
Religion
95% Roman Catholic. 
 
 
Climate 
 
Malta’s climate is strongly influenced by the sea and is typical of the Mediterranean.  The Islands have a very sunny climate with a daily average of five to six hours sunshine in mid-winter to around 12 hours in summer.
Winters are mild, with the occasional short chilly period brought about by the north and north-easterly winds from central Europe.
Summers are hot, dry and very sunny. Day-time temperatures in summer are often mitigated by cooling sea breezes, but in spring and autumn a very hot wind from Africa occasionally brings unseasonally high temperatures and humidity.  This is known as the Sirocco, or, in Maltese, the Xlokk – this wind affects Greece and Italy as well; in Malta the air is generally drier because of the short sea track from the African coast. 
Annual rainfall is low, averaging 568mm a year, and the length of the dry season in summer is longer than in neighbouring Italy. Sea bathing is quite possible well in to the ‘winter’ months, and the peak beach season can last until mid- to late October. 
 
Electricity
240 volts AC, 50Hz. UK-style three-pin plug are in use. 
 
Social Conventions
The usual European courtesies are expected, but the visitor should also bear in mind the tremendous importance of Roman Catholicism; if visiting a church, for instance, modest dress covering the shoulders and legs will be expected. Smoking is prohibited on public transport and in all public buildings, including cinemas, restaurants and bars. 
 
Currency
Euro (EUR; symbol €) = 100 cents. Notes are in denominations of €500, 200, 100, 50, 20, 10 and 5. Coins are in denominations of €2 and 1, and 50, 20, 10, 5, 2 and 1 cents.
 
Currency Exchange
Money can be changed at banks, bureaux de change, some hotels, and larger shops and restaurants. Automated foreign exchange machines are available at various locations on the islands. Exchange bureaux are often open 24 hours a day. Some hotels, larger shops and restaurants accept foreign currency. The best rates of exchange will always be found at the banks.
 
Credit/Debit Cards and ATMs
American Express, Diners Club, MasterCard and Visa are accepted. ATMs are available.
 
Traveller's Cheques
Exchanged in the normal authorised institutions.
