The Mysterious and Magical Island of Malta
The Westin Dragonara Resort Hotel is situated in the heart of the island of Malta, in the quaint and yet modern and buzzing with life town of St Julian's.
The Maltese Islands have been described as one big open-air museum where you can discover 7,000 years of history in a relatively short time thanks to the short distances between all the attractions. Delve into the Islands' mysterious prehistory, retrace the footsteps of St Paul or see where the Knights of St John defended Christendom.
Throughout the cities, towns and countryside surrounding the resort, culture, art and history abound. Intimate beaches, stunning scenery, churches, and 7,000-year-old Neolithic temples are some of the attractions that can be found. Shopping, entertainment and dining downtown are also just steps from the resort. In just 48 hours and a kilometer or two, you can try a new sport, laze on an island cruise and tour the most important historic sites, and still have time to join in the nightlife. That's the real advantage of a stay here.
Though Maltese is the official national language, English is considered the second language and is spoken throughout the island. In addition, Italian, French and German are also widely spoken. The Euro is the local currency in Malta.
