Experience Europride 2023 at the Cugó Gran Macina
Malta is one of the smallest countries in Europe and forms part of an archipelago between North Africa and Sicily, together with another two small islands – Gozo and Comino. Because of its position, over the years it has attracted different civilizations, all looking for the best strategic position, and therefore diversity is imprinted in the DNA of the Maltese.
For the last couple of years, Malta has been ranked as being the most LGBTIQ+ friendly country in Europe, ranking top of the ILGA Europe Rainbow Index for five years in a row! The small island in the middle of the Mediterranean sea has been appearing in Europe’s travel gaydar due to the people’s extremely liberal attitude and openness towards the LGBTIQ+ community.
Malta welcomes and recognises all forms of couples and families, irrespective of their gender, while displays of affection in public areas can be witnessed without attracting any attention. There is no gay neighbourhood, as the LGBTIQ+ community is welcomed everywhere across the islands.
This year’s Europride, with the main aim to offer the European, Middle East & North Africa LGBTIQ+ Community a safe place to discuss today’s issues based on prejudice, bias and fear, through a series of events and activities will kick off on September 7.
The Cugó Gran Macina will be joining in the 10-day non-stop party in September. Our hotel, a Maltese landmark and an icon of Senglea offers spacious suites set in a historic building, that showcase modern interior design. All rooms are generously proportioned and luxuriously furnished. High vaulted ceilings and black-painted handrails on the mezzanine floors evoke the industrial past of the old harbour building. Set against this, the finest natural materials and carefully selected design elements provide a modern and luxurious contrast.
This interplay of past and present and of design and comfort will guarantee you a unique experience. The uniqueness of the location is also represented by the Cugó Gran Macina staff, who are multilingual, always polite and on hand to help with anything that you might need.
The exclusive pool on the roof of the building promises wellness and relaxation in a sublime atmosphere above the city’s roof tops. You can relax back into one of the loungers and allow your gaze to roam across the Mediterranean setting, before or after attending the various events for Europride 2023. And what’s great about the hotel is that you can also catch a ferry to all the cultural events, parties, festivals, conferences, fashion nights and other activities culminating in Malta’s capital, Valletta.
