Malta’s beauty lies in its historical architecture and dramatic coastline, its hilly hinterland and its buzzy cosmopolitan lifestyle. The island is situated at the heart of the Mediterranean and enjoys superb year-round weather and an appealing way of life which combines typical southern European joie de vivre with a solid and well-regulated business environment. It is this combination that has made Malta such a popular destination for businesses and international homeowners over the years.
Valletta is the capital, a UNESCO World Heritage site and has just been declared European Capital of Culture for 2018. It sits on the banks of Marsamxetto creek and its warm glowing sandstone bastions draw the eye with its beauty. At night it is equally spectacular with its baroque architecture reflected in the calm waters of the creek.
Modern Malta – movie production and more
Major films have been shot on the island, including Da Vinci Code, Gladiator and the recent Captain Philips among others and the island has built up a reputation in the film industry as a perfect historical backdrop and a living film set.
From a cultural aspect the islands boasts a rich and varied calendar with spectacular international-grade outdoor concerts and performances in the summer months and festivals, theatre and weekly concerts during the winter, particularly in Valletta and especially at the Manoel Theatre, one of Europe’s best preserved baroque theatres.
It’s also renowned for a great many regattas including the world-class Rolex Middlesea Race which sets off from the Grand Harbour every October.
Relocating to Malta
The island has also proved a great draw for companies looking for a European base and has succeeded in positioning itself as an ideal place for retirees looking to relocate to the Mediterranean. Its location at the heart of this historic sea and its favourable residency and property purchasing conditions make it an ideal country from which to operate.
Malta joined the EU in 2004 and the resilient economy has performed commendably during the recent international economic downturn when it avoided much of the banking turmoil and bailouts that so many of its southern European counterparts succumbed to. Throughout this period Malta has continued to attract international investment and has consolidated its position as an attractive, safe and business-friendly location that offers an enviable Mediterranean lifestyle.
