A record number of people have visited Malta's capital city in the first six months of 2018, according to new figures.

Between January and June, more than 317,000 people attended events celebrating Valletta's year as European Capital of Culture.

Valletta 2018 chairman Jason Micallef told 89.7 Bay: 'These results are a clear indication that Valletta 2018 events, which are taking place all across the Maltese Islands, are accessible to a wide range of audiences and that artists as well as community members are co-creators in the Valletta 2018 Cultural Programme'.

Figures from the Malta Tourism Authority show that in the first quarter of 2018, there was a huge rise in the number of tourists visiting the island and who were 'greatly motivated' by culture.

Valletta's status as Europe's culture capital was the main motivation to visit Malta for 13.5% of tourists in the first quarter of 2018 – three times higher than in 2017.
