In the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, between Italy and Greece, there is a country called malt (Republic of Malta) formed by three small islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino. English colony until 1964 and whose history begins 5,000 years before Christ.
As a great leap into the past, or rather, many moments of the past, Malta is between its millenary history and a promising future. At every step, in every corner or every facade, you can hide secrets and mysteries of all the peoples and civilizations that have passed through it.
The cuisine is very rich and varied, a mixture between Italian and Greek with its own and very peculiar characteristics such as goat cheese with pepper, rabbit stew, some cupcakes stuffed with anything ... and they have their own wine. It is strange that you have your wine production considering how small it is.
One of the most common practices in Malta is scuba diving, where there are a lot of companies that offer equipment, courses, guides, etc. so you can see the wonders of the Maltese seabed, not only natural but also the wrecks that have taken place there for centuries.
The two official languages are Maltese and English, so it becomes a very advisable destination to learn this language or improve it, both in the street and in the dozens of academies throughout the island.
Both for a getaway and for spending more days, Malta is a highly recommended destination in many ways.
