Malta's Grand Harbor is one of the finest natural harbors in the Mediterranean Sea.  The island nation's capital city of Valetta occupies the northern side of the harbor, while its southern side is dominated by the Three Cities of Birgu, Senglea and Cospicua.  The last two of these were founded by the Order of St. John in the 16th and 17h centuries, while the first is substantially older.  In this beautiful drone video by TravelPenguin, you can get a bird's eye view of all three of these cultural treasures.

Valletta is the historic and stunning capital of the island of Malta. The city, built by the Knights of St. John, was once given the nickname “Superbissima” – Italian for “Most Proud.” It also served as a prime filming location for many King's Landing scenes in Season 1 on Game of Thrones. Using a DJI Mavic Pro, drone pilot rikk08 shot the stunning aerial views of this historic city. Fittingly, this video is a Finalist in the Game of Drones category for the second annual Drone Video Awards.

Gozo is the second largest island of the archipelago nation of Malta in the Mediterranean, lying to the north of the country's namesake main island.  Fans of HBO's Game of Thrones series may recognize the Azure Window in Gozo; this now-collapsed rock formation was the filming location for the wedding feast for Khal Drogo and Daenerys Targaryen in the show's first season.  Contributor Zzlat used a DJI Phantom 3 drone to capture aerial views of this paradise of Gozo in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea.

One of the mysteries of the history of early Christianity was the location of the shipwreck of Paul the Apostle, aka St. Paul.  According to the Bible, he was shipwrecked on an island called "Melita" on his way to Rome to stand trial following his arrest during his last trip to Jerusalem.  The purported (but not historically proven) spot where the shipwreck occurred is now called St. Paul's Bay, on the northeastern coast of the island of Malta.  Check it out from above in this drone video by zzlat.
