Forteresses maltaises! Maltese fortresses!
A short post to thank the Malta Post for sending me this FDC cover depicting some fortresses of the archipelago. Malta, officially the Republic of Malta (Maltese : Repubblika ta' Malta), is a Southern European country consisting of an archipelago situated in the centre of the Mediterranean, 93 km south of Sicily and 288 km east of Tunisia, with the Strait of Gibraltar 1,826 km to the west and Alexandria 1,510 km to the east. Malta achieved its independence on 21 September 1964 and joined the European Union on May, 1 2004. The Malta currency is now Euro since 2008.
