History Of Malta
Malta has a history dating back to ancient times, despite its relatively small territory (316 km2). Malta’s harbors have been attracting several nations for many years, strategically positioned at the crossroads of the European and African-Asian cultural and trade ties. As a consequence, up to the 1960s, a variety of cultures used to rule the land, including Greek, Roman, Arab, French, and British.
Valletta, the capital city, was founded in 1571 by the order of Knights of Malta, which had been in charge of Malta since 1530. Valletta still has ancient stone walls erected in the mid-1560s when Sultan Suleiman’s fleet of the Ottoman Empire sought to conquer the Maltese. Those impressive walls survived both World Wars and are still the places to see if you enjoy sailing holidays in Malta.
Catholicism, which is specified in the country’s Constitution, is Malta’s principal and official religion. Due to the same cultural diversity created by diverse cultural factors, the Maltese have various traditions. National and religious holidays are widely celebrated throughout the world, and the memorial dates of their patron saints are also observed in some towns and villages. The Maltese Cross is one of the symbols commonly associated with Malta. The four points with eight arms reflect the eight lands to which the Maltese Order’s knights belonged.
Cuisine of Malta
Malta also provides a wide variety of the most delicious foods and dishes one can even dream of on a sailing holiday, as part of the Mediterranean culinary scene. You certainly have to try local cuisine during your yacht charter in Malta, with typical Mediterranean cooking traditions that include many vegetables and olives. There are also French, British, Sicilian, and African impacts on food: people in Malta like to drink tea with milk and enjoy French bakeries.
The local cuisine can usually be presented with various soups and pasta or risotto. It can be grilled or baked fish and eaten with fresh tomatoes, capers, and lemon slices. Visit one of the restaurants on the waterfront and check out the freshest fish from the night’s catch.
Situated in the middle of the Mediterranean, Malta is a real paradise for anyone fortunate enough to go there. Formerly under the United Kingdom government, the island is now fully autonomous. However, as their primary tongue, Malta retained English (and Maltese).
Malta is a tiny island paradise. You will enjoy swimming, fishing, relaxing on the beaches, exploring the many coves, exploring the local villages, admiring the stunning rocky shores, or the mysterious temples, seeing beautiful architecture or historical sites, and sampling local specialties, and much more.
