The most common etymology of the country’s name originates from Greek, as they have called Malta ‘honey-sweet’. This can be described with the endemic species of bees, which live there and the fact that Malta is known for its honey production.
Over the years different societies have influenced the Maltese Islands and as a result the culture is strongly influenced by those movements. A Mediterranean presence seems to surround this European country. Malta is known for its tranquillity, the beauty of the landscapes and isolation of its small islands.
