Malta is a small and densely populated island nation comprising an archipelago of seven islands in the Mediterranean Sea. It lies south of Sicily, east of Tunisia, and north of Libya. The official languages are Maltese and English. Malta is the smallest member state of the European Union (EU). The narrow cobblestone streets of its towns are crowded with Renaissance cathedrals and baroque palaces.
