The Maltese Islands

POSTCROSSING FRIEND | POSTCARD SENT FROM MALTA
I got this postcard from Goran during his vacation in Malta. He shared that Malta is a country he fell in love with. Malta is a great place to visit for sea, sun, culture, and attractions.
Malta is a southern European country in the Mediterranean Sea. The country covers just over 316 km2 (122 sq mi), making it one of the world's smallest and most densely populated countries. The capital of Malta is Valletta. Malta is sometimes traditionally claimed to be an Apostolic see because, according to the Acts of the Apostles, Paul the Apostle was shipwrecked on Malta. Catholicism is the official religion in Malta.
Malta is a favoured tourist destination with its warm climate, numerous recreational areas, and architectural and historical monuments, including nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
