I walk in Mdina, the old capital city of Malta. The old city is known as the Silent City of Malta. If you are in Malta it is a great place to visit and explore. It is also known by its titles of Città Vecchia or Città Notabile, is a fortified city in the Northern Region of Malta which served as the island’s capital from antiquity to the medieval period. The city is still confined within its walls and has a population of just under 300, but it is contiguous with the town of Rabat, which takes its name from the Arabic word for suburb, and has a population of over 11,000.
I go through the Greeks Gate and explore the Mdina Ditch (Il-Foss tal-Imdina) which are newly restored gardens.
Mdina is the old capital “Citta Notabile” of Malta. It’s known as the Silent City, but it was also the City of Game of Thrones. This video explores Mdina with a look at the filming locations in the town.

UPDATE: They have been invited to Malta once more.
The UK Daily Star has reported that Game of Thrones has been BANNED from filming in Malta!
We’ve seen various locations in Malta and Gozo – including Mdina – used as a filming location for this tv show. This included the scenes set at King’s Landing, the Dothraki Sea and the village of Lhazareen.
A problem arose with the marriage of Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo which was filmed at the Azure Window, a popular tourist spot.
Even though special mesh was used to cover the area in “desert” sand, it was claimed they failed to clean up properly, damaging the fossil-rich site.
We’ve seen many movies and tv shows filmed in Malta throughout the years, including Gladiator, World War Z and Captain Phillips.
