Next to Rabat, where we just moved, is Mdina. The ancient city dates back 4,000 years, is older than Valletta and was the capital of Malta from antiquity to the Middle Ages. Mdina is today also referred to as the ‘Silent City’.

Fler bilder från Gozo, den här gången från Victoria, öns största stad om än liten. Även här måste du nog klicka på bilderna för att de ska komma till sin fulla rätt. Till varje bild finns en kort text, ordningen är slumpvis. Enjoy 🙂

A typical tourist street that is also well worth exploring.
Here`s some more pictures from last weekend in Gozo, this time from Victoria, the largest city on the island. If you like, take your time and click on an image to enlarge, to each image there’s a short text. The order is random. Enjoy !
