The nuances of vacationing in Malta and tips for tourists

Malta – a quiet and safe country with a low crime rate. However, offenses do occur here. Park your car in a crowded place. Do not carry large sums of money and valuables.

There are three kinds of poisonous scorpions on the island. They are not dangerous in cities, but if you are going to the countryside, look carefully at rocks and rock crevices. After a scorpion bite, there can be a strong allergic reaction, so it is important to seek medical attention immediately.

It is most convenient to travel around Malta by bus. Modern transport is equipped with air conditioning, soft seats and electronic displays. Buses that travel through the capital of the country have numbers from 1 to 99. Tickets are sold by drivers. Fares start at 1.5€. In the cities are buses, minibuses and cabs.

Maltese cuisine is very delicious. Try the mouthwatering pastizzi or Maltese patties, dishes of fish lampuki , appetizer of beans, peppers and vegetables – baguilla and tender yogurt ice cream.

Irina Ok: “I was especially delighted with rabbit stew. It would seem that what is special, we also cook it, but the Maltese do it so exquisitely. I do not know what the secret is, maybe the spices.”

Malta – reviews by tourists

Do not visit the Mdina Catacombs at the entrance of Mdina Malta.

You will not see anything interesting there – old dusty poorly made wax dolls.

The view is low quality and not interesting. But you will definitely get your wallet stolen there.

There is a gang of fraudulent pickpockets with young girls in the group. The administration

Catacombs covers up the crooks. Thefts happen there regularly. It’s all happening

20 meters away from the police station. But the police won’t help you

They’re too small and boring. Beaches with a bad entrance to the sea

  • Few greenery.
  • Uncomfortable entrance to the sea – some gangways at the cliff (we had a rest in the hotel Radisson).
  • Not very tasty cuisine (compared with other countries in the region).

Visited once and will not go again.

“The whole truth about Malta. No one will tell you that! An inside look. “

The place to stay in Malta is Victoria.

Hello everyone. I want to share my impressions about Malta. I actually stayed not in a hotel, but at my sister’s place. I just bought the tickets and made the passport (it was expired) in the agency of Magical Travel. She foolishly got married. But now I can share my impressions “from the inside”. For “do not confuse tourism with emigration. Almost everything that is praised on travel sites is crap. I read on this site that Maltese restaurants use bottled water for cooking. That’s a lie. They take it from the tap. Dishes are washed in standing water, and after soaping them, they immediately put them in the rinse water. So after 5 minutes, the clean rinse water is no different from the water where the dishes are supposed to be washed. There is soap and leftover food floating in both vats. There is no screening of the catering staff for disease. In general, the criterion of cleanliness for a Maltese is “well, you can’t see anything”. I mean, no pathogenic bacteria are visible. If you can save water, you save it. I’ve experienced this to the full… And they boil pasta in the same water until it turns into sourdough.

Never eat the traditional Maltese sheep cheese. This cheese is made by private individuals. Using one sheep as an example: You take a sheep (these sheep are kept on their own shit, not cleaned for half a year to a year), you take a milk bucket, which you wash once a month. The sheep is milked. Rolls of manure are fished out of the milk by the boy. Then the milk is strained into another bucket, which is washed with the same frequency as the first. Lactic acid bacteria are added to the milk and after half an hour the milk is fermented. The degree of readiness of the mass is checked with a finger, which is also not washed. Then this mass is spread out in molds and put on a tray, where the whey will drain. These molds are left there for 24 hours. In winter it is bearable, but in summer whey sourdough instantly, flies stew in it, which here simply a tremendous quantity (I have come back all bititten, though I took all sorts of fumigators like Raptor). Then the cheese is put out to dry on the grill outdoors, where it also serves as a snack for the flies. The flies are transported from sheep dung to cheese and back again. After drying until the cheese is sold, it is placed in a box outside. Before selling, the dusty cheese is washed with a brush in a bowl of water. The brush is the same as for cleaning floors and carpets. Why buy a special one? It’s dried again and sold. Cheese is used to make something between a pizza and a cheesecake. It’s also sprinkled with pizza and sold as cheesecakes. Fresh, unripened cheese can be offered along with artichokes. In general, always ask if there is cheese in the dish. Eating with cheese is for the extreme.

Well, the fact that the cab drivers charge tourists a couple or three times more expensive than the locals, I think, do not need to explain. This is everywhere. Similarly, may try to do in the stores and eateries. So it’s better to always take the goods with price tags, and in the snackbar to remember the prices on the menu. If due to any circumstances you need to stay in Malta for more than two weeks and there is a prospect that you will be sent something from abroad, keep in mind that the post office will open packages under the pretext that they need to know what you received. That’s democracy.

Local short-legged, crooked, unshaven and smelly (literally, they wash maximum once a week, and the elderly do not wash at all, shave once a week, teeth brushed when shaving) men think themselves irresistible Apollo and constantly pester the beaches. At least they are easily dismissed.

Animal lovers and advocates better not come here at all. The dogs live on the roofs. Hot from the sun in summer and icy from the rain in winter. They love to catch migratory songbirds here. Then they keep them in 20×10 cm cages. These bird cages are used to lure flying birds. Some birds are tied on special long sticks and periodically they are shaken so that the tied birds fluttered and beckoned to their congeners. None of the captured birds live longer than three years.

I am not going to tell you about keeping cattle. Not many people are interested in it. It is just completely unsanitary.

I will only note that those horses, which are full in Valletta and Mdina in winter starve and turn into skeletons. No reason to feed the cattle if there are no tourists. This applies to all the horses used for riding tourists.

Sometimes our countrywomen are “lucky” (like my sister) and, if a Maltese man does not prefer a short-term relationship, it is possible to build a family with him. Most current Russian-Maltese marriages begin as resort romances. A foreign wife or mistress is a man’s prestige in the eyes of his friends.

About appearance tourists do not have complexes so that against the background of the local population you will be considered a supermodel, even if the proverbial 90-60-90 you as to the cosmos.

No, of course, to have a rest in a hotel and to visit are different things, but nevertheless I found it necessary to share my experience, since I came to this site.

PS/ Yes, by the way, I recommend visiting the museum of torture. People with insufficiently strong nerves, as well as young children are not recommended to visit this museum. The howls and sighs (recording) can finish you off.

Malta is a small island state, where several thousand migrants from hot spots have moved in over the past 2-3 years. They are no different from those who terrorize continental Europe. So there are dangers: robberies in the dark, theft, molestation of women. There are no other dangers in Malta, except sunstroke and stones thrown under your feet.)

I don’t see anything attractive in Malta: rocks, dangerous beaches, exorbitant prices, museums which resemble each other… and constant baiting of tourists for money. A classic example, how to make money by selling tickets to the banal Piatigorsk failure. Probably from Ostap Ibrahimovich they learned.
