Valetta - Malta

Here is Valetta, the capital of the small nation of Malta in the Mediterranean. Population for the whole country is 394,583. Hmmm...having difficulty finding the population of specifically Valetta. Maybe not much of a skyline, but this is where my family is from (Malta), so I felt like having some Maltese pride!

3.5

Only because this is the skyline section... if posted anywhere else I'd give it a 6 or so.

Ehh, I like that one structure with the dome. Not much else though IMO. 4.5/10.

I love Malta, especially Valetta. The street design is based on a grid pattern similar to Glasgow and most US and Australian cities - it was to enable one of the worlds first planned sewerage systems to be built. The skyline of Medina is also very imposing.

Malta will not happen to history through his skyline, although it is a precious Mediterranean place!!!!!!!!!!

skyline 3/10

It's a beautiful city, but the skyline only deserves 5/10

4.5

Maybe I should have put that bit last.....Anyway, hopefully Valetta never gets a big skyline, as it is an excellent city and on of my favourites in Europe, nice and dense although very lowrise.
