But before we put you on an airplane to one of the hottest moving destinations, we want to acquaint you with some vital details and the way of life in the Republic of Malta:
Malta is an archipelago in the central Mediterranean, some 50 miles south of the Italian island of Sicily across the Malta Channel. It consists of some small uninhabited islands and three big ones. Only the three largest islands – Malta, Gozo (Maltese: Għawdex) and Comino (Maltese: Kemmuna) – are home to the entire population. The islands of the archipelago lie on the Malta plateau, a land bridge between Sicily and North Africa that became isolated as sea levels rose after the last Ice Age. The archipelago is therefore situated in the zone between the Eurasian and African tectonic plates.
Malta is of vital importance when it comes to navigating through the Mediterranean Sea. Its strategic position is vital and well exploited. Numerous bays along the indented coastline of the islands provide good harbors. The landscape consists of low hills with terraced fields. The highest point in Malta is Ta’ Dmejrek, at 830 ft, near Dingli. Although there are some small rivers at times of high rainfall, there are no permanent rivers or lakes on Malta.
