Malta has a small capital city, but you need to travel there to appreciate how small it is.
The population is only just over 6,000 I think some senior schools in the UK have numbers nearly that large.
On arriving I stood at the top of the city albeit on a hill, looked left and saw the sea, looked right and saw the sea and looked ahead and saw the sea. You feel that you can view the whole capital by just turning your head around. It’s a small yet perfect capital city though and don’t miss the quaint little cannon firing ceremony twice a day
