Dive into big fun in the tiny island nation of Malta.
Allie Moore

Smack dab in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, almost equidistant from mainland Europe and North Africa, lies the tiny island nation of Malta. Its confluence of cultures has weathered the storms of several occupations, but it now serves as a gateway between continents and a well-preserved museum of some of the world’s oldest civilizations.

Comprising three islands (Malta, Comino and Gozo), the archipelago’s rugged coastlines and sparkling sapphire waters make it a desirable destination for both work and play. From the growing capital city of Valletta to the stunning rocky shores that once housed the world-famous Azure Window, Malta is rife with opportunities to expand and explore.

Founded in the 16th century by the Knights of St. John, the former walled city of Valletta now serves as Malta’s capital. Functioning for the past few centuries as a hub for economic trade between North Africa, the Middle East and Europe, Valletta became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1980 and the European Capital of Culture in 2018. Due to its central location, Malta has seen a surge in international visitors who arrive for both business and pleasure. While often based in Valletta, business travelers can easily explore other areas of the island as well as the neighboring islands by public bus, rental car or private driver.

Their names and publications should become self-evident upon reading.
