General Impressions of Rabat and super views, Malta

We never heard of Rabat but almost everyone who has been to Malta, was in Rabat. Rabat is the lower city just besides Mdina, one of the most famous places of Malta. When you would like to enter Mdina, you have to pass via Rabat.

What can we share with you about Rabat? The people are friendly like everywhere in Malta, there are parks and you have amazing views of the areas around the city even up to the sea. There is also a Roman museum and as most important the entrance to the walled city of Mdina. When you are tired you can visit both cities by horse and carriage.

We hadden nog nooit gehoord over Rabat maar zoals bijna iedereen die Malta bezoekt is in Rabat geweest. Rabat is de lagere stad die net naast Mdina ligt één van de meest beroemde plaatsen van Malta. Als je Mdina wil binnen gaan moet je via Rabat passeren. 

Wat kunnen we delen over Rabat? De mensen zijn vriendelijk zoals overal in Malta, er zijn parken en het zicht over de omliggende gebieden is ongelooflijk, je kan zelfs tot aan de zee zien. Er is een Romeins museum en als aller belangrijkste, de toegangspoort tot de ommuurde stad Mdina. Als je te moe bent dit te wandelen, kan je altijd beide steden met paard en koets verkennen.

  1. Looks like a beautiful spot, and love the view from on high of the sea. I had also never heard of Rabat, but now, thanks to you, I have. Hope your business is still giving you plenty of relaxation time!

  2. It is wonderful to see that in some parts of the world the sun is shinning and the sky is deep blue.
    From my visit to Malta I do recall those impressive defensive walls which I seem to remember were built by the Knights of St John.

  3. Malta is a place I haven't given much thought to visiting, but judging by your shots it has a lot to offer.

  4. You take me places I would never see!
