Welcomes you to
Malta



 

Malta is being brought to you by my friend Dave, a clever man with a naughty sense of humor -- none of which is reflected in these lovely photographs  (big smile to Dave!)

Grand Harbor - classic view
Malta has been one of the greatest maritime ports for hundreds of years. The island is overflowing with history and Valetta, the capital, is for good reason a world heritage site.

Grand Harbor - Reflections
Sliema Creek
Not only large vessels can be seen at anchor in Malta. Sliema Creek, an offshoot of Grand Harbour, is home for sailing yachts from around the world. They also provide the photographer with very nice reflections!

Mdina - Main Gate
Mdina is a beautiful Medieval city founded about 1000BC by the Phoenicians. Subsequently it was occupied by the Romans and the Saracens. For a long time Mdina was the seat of government and the capital city of Malta. Today it is known as 'The Silent City' due to the absence of motor vehicles. The atmosphere is of calm and peace. A wonderful place. The photo shows the main gateway to the city
