Holidays in Malta – reviews
All merhba, I mean “hello” in Maltese! This summer in Moscow, it seems, ended before it began, and I recently completed a planned summer vacation, the story of which today will go. First of all, why Malta. The past.
Good day all! My review will be about the beautiful Mediterranean island of Malta. I was lucky to visit Malta in 2008. As I was studying at the Faculty of Foreign Languages, I needed language practice.
A good option for a vacation for a week
Our holiday in Malta was in the middle of October. In my opinion, this is the best time to vacation here. Judge for yourself, the flow of tourists at this time drops significantly, prices for airline tickets and hotels are also markedly lower.
To go on vacation to the island of Malta was exclusively my idea. You know, something from my childhood – about the Knights of the Order of Malta. And on the whole, the trip did not disappoint, but gave a lot of unusual impressions. Despite the fact that.
It was the end of January and a great desire to see something new. Because of not very favorable weather we wanted to go where it would be relatively warm. I write relatively because we were only considering Europe. We were not looking for African.
Friendly, tidy, diverse.
nice people – cleanliness – English – variety of entertainment (noisy discos and quiet nature reserves, cruise ships, water park, oceanarium, many museums) – large portions – convenient transportation – beautiful views
– sloppy bus drivers – stone beaches, often unequipped – almost no Russian speakers – no public toilets in town – not much of a variety of beers (everyone drinks their own local or Guinness)
Holidays in Malta were two weeks, from 11 to 26 May. This is the very beginning of the holiday season. In most guidebooks write that at this time of year the weather there is already summer, about +23 – +25 degrees, which is on.
A lot of attractions, beautiful narrow streets, a small island
I want to share my experiences from rest in Malta. We vacationed in Sliema. The island is divided into small resort towns. Malta is a small island. We were there for a week. Almost all of it. We vacationed in May. The weather was variable.
Very good vacation.
Our weekend in Malta came in the middle of September. As I would like to think, this is the best time to relax here. Decide for yourself, the flow of vacationers is dropping significantly now, the cost of tickets for transportation and lodging is extra much.
THIS IS PARADISE.
Malta, or as they used to say “Melit” (means “honey” in Greek). The island itself is situated in the Mediterranean Sea at an altitude of 253 meters above sea level. (Since May 1, 2004 Malta is in.
Malta is a wonderful resort for a week, for those who do not know where to fly quick.
I happen to live in Malta for work. Only a fool would not take the opportunity to take a couple of excursions or just wander the streets and shop. The climate is hot, so stores are mostly open from 8 a.m. to 12 noon.
Burns from the Maltese jellyfish Pelagia nochesvetka
The coast of Malta is very beautiful and unusual. As a souvenir I was “lucky” to bring home on my shoulder a beautiful Maltese brand – a kiss of the local jellyfish Pelagia Noctiluca or “purple sting”. Before meeting this venomously beautiful creature in person, I.
Interesting and informative.
Malta is a small island state that is located in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. We were in Malta in 2011 (from 25.09.11 to 01.10.11). Many tourists from Russia come here to improve their English.
Who is looking for magical rest, he will find it.
We spent 10 days in the middle of October. The weather was +27-29. It was rainy on arrival just one day, otherwise it was sunny. We were looking for beach holidays, active holidays and travel excursions. We found everything! But the time was disastrously short.
Malta – a great place for people who are not indifferent to history.
Remarkable archipelago of three islands. It is amazing how everything has been preserved, such a long history, and not the ruins around. Very nice little town, 360 churches. The weather is mild. Beaches, of course, for people confident in the water, to lie in comfort.
Small, cozy, old, hot, friendly and my favorite Malta!
Ah, Malta. In autumn 2007 I visited the island of Malta. I went there with a group to study English at an international language school EF. I went to study and got a bonus – a wonderful impression of the new country.
A wonderful country.
I associate Malta with beach holidays, is not associated with it now. Although it is there. I went with my mother and husband and we are not young people, and about the parties do not know anything. We did.
Beautiful and poor country.
Malta is a small island state, quite interesting, where, for example, the Minister of Malta can be met by every visitor to the country. We visited Valletta, the city is very beautiful. We were in St. John’s Cathedral, St. Dominic’s Church, St. Paul’s Cathedral. Honestly.
A country you don’t want to leave!
Inexpensive vacation, beautiful nature, good service, clean country, there are so many. Not even to count!
I and my husband love to travel a lot, every time we choose a different country, different islands. Malta is a fairly small island, but it does not hinder him a bit. There is a huge number of historical monuments, architectural works.
Vprinpipa all great, but there are some disadvantages.
Malta is the smallest and closest to the equator in Europe, but Europe does not want to be called, in recent years there are a lot of refugees, garbage scattered in the streets, the boxes with garbage overflowed in some cities.
What a wonderful island! I would come again!
Vacationed as a family in October 2017. The best time to visit was during the velvet season. Comfortably warm weather, sun every day, water warmer than air. Beaches with soft sand and azure water. Perfect for holidays with children.
