COUNTRY BACKGROUND malta

The Maltese archipelago is located right in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, stretching to an area which is not greater than 316 square kilometers.
The size of the Maltese islands are definitely not a reflection of the great historical and cul tural treasures the country prides itself on.
The hot summers and the mild winters characterize Malta’s Mediterranean climate, certainly a pull-factor to all enthusi asts of outdoor activities taking place all the year round. Attractions range from Malta’s pristine beaches and countryside, appetizing restaurants, outstanding nightlife and indulging historical and cultural monuments which narrate the island’s 7,000 year-old history.
