Valletta Named the European Cultural Capital city for 2018

Valletta, the capital of Malta, has been selected as the European Cultural Capital city for 2018 for its history and extensive culture. Valletta was built in 1566 by the Knights of St John, and Malta is truly a living museum for all who visit.

A huge renovation program – led by famous Italian architect, Renzo Piano – has taken place for the last couple of years, renovating the fortifications surrounding the city, the major palaces and auberges of the knights, as well as the main entrance of Valletta.  As a result of this initiative, now nearly all of these renovated major historic buildings are ready to be used for gala dinners, receptions, and more.
