Malta is an archipelago located in the Mediterranean Sea. Even though Malta is a European island, it is located further south than some African countries. The landscape of Malta and the other islands are characterised by terraced fields, dry vegetation, rock and limestone.

The culture of Malta is the result of the many different societies that came in contact with the Maltese Islands throughout history, including cultures of neighbouring countries, cultures of nations that ruled Malta for long centuries, and other influences from Malta2tourism and media.

The main religion in Malta is Roman Catholicism, in fact, most Maltese claim to be Catholic and participate in Catholic religious services. The Constitution of Malta also establishes Catholicism as the state religion, however freedom of religion is guaranteed as a constitutional right and is generally respected.
