Valletta

Valletta - Malta

Although Valletta is one of Europe's smallest capital cities, it is certainly one of its most beautiful ones. Yes, the Maltese capital has a population of only 6300 people, but that does not keep it from looking spectacular. Most of its buildings are Baroque, which reflects how important Malta was in the 17th and 18th centuries. In the 19th century Benjamin Disraeli visited Valletta, which led him to write that "Valletta equals in its noble architecture, if it does not excel, any capital in Europe". Not bad for such a small town!

Valletta's history has been long and winding, and at the moment it is in its era of high tech: Especially high-end electronics and pharmaceuticals are now big in its production sector.

It can't be denied, the city's international, English-speaking atmosphere has had great impact on that development, but it is far from the only factor. The government's smart fiscal policy and deregulations also have to be thanked for this trend. If such a modern and future-bound city is also beautiful and a tourist paradise, then this combination is almost perfect. So it is no wonder that Valletta, despite its small size, is now one of the hottest tickets in the European Union. Its expat community is growing steadily. This has widely strengthened its real-estate market, which is now in very impressive shape. At the same time, many of the offers are still very affordable.

St. John's Co-Cathedral is one of the city's most wonderful monuments. This Baroque church was completed in 1572. In Malta, the Catholic religion still plays a very important role in the everyday lives of the people. Perhaps it is the physical proximity to Islamic North Africa that makes the Maltese so aware of their Christian heritage. Malta is the perfect bridge between Africa and Europe, and the country is a mixture of East and West in terms of culture, but the Maltese are clearly very proud Europeans. Did you know that Valletta is Europe's Southern-most capital city (after Nicosia in Cyprus)? So almost nowhere in Europe is there
