Off the beaten path: Malta

Although Malta is quite small, it has a very rich history - the land has been inhabited since the Neolithic era and has some of the world's most ancient buildings and dwarf elephants ' skeletons. There are many things to see in Malta - apart from it being one of the popular destinations to film Hollywood movies and series like Game of Thrones, apart from the well known places like Mdina - the silent city and Valetta with its rich history, there are some locations that are off the beaten path - megalithic temples and Ghar Dalam cave with its small museum and some unusual exhibits, some beautiful countryside to explore and, although not an off the beaten track attraction - those weird Maltese buses and their drivers are definitely something to remember.
