Malta, officially the Republic of Malta (Maltese: Repubblika ta’ Malta), is a small and densely-populated island nation comprising an archipelago of seven islands three of which are inhabited. It is located in the Mediterranean Sea within Southern Europe just thirty-seven miles south of Sicily; further south is North Africa giving the country a warm climate.
The country’s official languages are Maltese and English, the latter of which is a legacy from Malta’s period as a British colony – the United Kingdom is the most recent outside ruling power. Malta gained independence in 1964 and is currently a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, as well as the European Union which it joined in 2004.
