4. National War Museum, Fort St Elmo, Valletta, Malta

Malta is known for the courage it showed during WWII. The cross featured on the Maltese flag was in fact awarded to Malta, by King George VI, for this very reason. Visit Fort St Elmo to discover the features of the National War Museum and explore the methods employed by the Maltese during the wars they fought.
