So, this was our day two on Malta. With bumpy rides we arrived in Mdina early in the morning. 🙂 This was the capital of Malta in history so it is very nice – besides there was something going on there. As we found out later it was “Medina medieval festival” wich happens once a year.
Mdina Medieval festival – Two days of re-enactments and pageantry that evoke Malta’s late medieval period (1200 – 1500 AD)
It was amazing – no words can describe that so here are photographs! 🙂
First, the city itself:
And than the amazing event:
2. Lunch – typical Maltese pastizzis
After the event we went to get something to eat – we tried typical food like always when we travel. We tried pastizzi: one filled with ricotta cheese, one with chicken and the last with peas in it. It is very good and it only cost 30 cents! 🙂
3. Saint Paul’s catacombs in Rabat
Near Mdina there is a city called Rabat and we gave 5 € each to enter St. Paul’s catacombs – wow ! Scary, but so interesting. People of all religions buried their loved once under the ground. The graves and worship rooms are all parts of giant underground labyrinth of death.
4. Dingli cliffs
Amazing nature strikes again! 🙂 No words needed. 🙂
5. Nightlife: St. Julian’s
Our Maltese scout friend named Gail said we have to meet for a drink in Saint Julian’s. This is the real party side – 3 streets full of clubs, bars etc. 🙂 We tried great local beer – Cisk. 🙂 And than? We called it a day.
