Ta’ Qali contains the national football stadium, Ta’ Qali National Park, a crafts village, and many workshops where Maltese craftsmen produce their handiwork. It’s also one of the largest green areas in Malta. The Formal Garden within the Park is planted with a large variety of indigenous and non-indigenous tree species. There is also plenty of space for kids to run freely. Note that weather in Malta gets really hot, so if you’re going to Ta’ Qali, pick a time either in the early morning or early evening, preferably outside the day’s hottest hours, and make sure to bring a hat, sunglasses and sunblock with you.
There is also the Malta Aviation Museum where one can find different types of aircraft related to Maltese aviation history, harkening back to the island’s World War days during which time the Ta’ Qali National Park served as a Royal Air Force airfield and barracks for the Allied forces.
If you really want to get blown away, we suggest taking some time to find Mdina Glass, Malta’s leading glass making company. There, you’ll get to see apprentices and masters working together on a truly vast range of homeware, from colourful and expressive vases, bowls, trophies, lighting products, to table and kitchenware, soap dispensers, scented candleholders and sculptures.
