November 14: The best of Malta & JESC 2014 in photos
VALLETTA, MALTA – Through this series of posts I wanna share with you the amazing country Malta is. A place with indescribable beauty a mix of European and oriental sentiment, a unit combination of amazing features and sight seeings. In this post I wanna share with you the experience from Valletta’s Waterfront.
It was the first night out actually for me and my friends here in Malta. We decided to go to Valletta’s Waterfront, a magical place with renovated mid-eval buildings next to the post of Valletta. Lots of coffee shops and restaurants will simply amaze you as the night lights to the buildings create a mystic sentiment. Each building is named as Vault plus a number. We had the pleasure to have a nice cocktail at Hard Rock Cafe and as I saw lots of delegations were there to eat and drink something. There are restaurants with popular dishes like pizza and past over there (not that I heard a bad place to eat here in Malta).
and some information about the place (by vallettawaterfront.com)
With its nineteen historical 250-year-old warehouses, built by Grand Master Pinto at the height of the baroque period in Malta … stretching along the water’s edge and the historical Quay Wall where the Knights of St John and European merchants used to unload their wares, the impregnable Old Power Station that serves as a testimony to the eclectic and heroic history of the Grand Harbour, the Forni Stores, dating back to 1626 and constructed by Grand Master de Vilhena – the Valletta Waterfront invites you to discover its complete mix of retail, dining and leisure experiences.
The Valletta Waterfront is also the gateway to Malta’s capital city, Valletta – a city built by gentlemen for gentlemen. In fact, as one of the most successful Mediterranean ports, the Port of Valletta welcomes more than half-a-million cruise passengers into this open air museum. All this comes with an added bonus – the majestic setting within the Grand Harbour, a natural deep water port, for many thousand of years the epicentre of Malta’s maritime activity, a truly exceptional and outstanding backdrop.
