A few weeks ago, Richard and I went to Oxford for a long weekend. I had been wanting to go back for years. It’s such a beautiful city; the architecture is gorgeous, the history is incredible and they have the most fantastic museums. I love that there are bicycles everywhere and lots of great cafes,
Mdina used to be the capital of Malta many many moons ago. It was then moved to Birgu (Vittoriosa), one of the Three Cities opposite Valletta, leaving Mdina rather quiet. This could explain its nickname, “The Silent City”.
It seems to me like they have tried to keep things as quiet as possible since then.
