Azure Window, Malta

Once a major tourist attraction in Malta, the Azure Window is now receiving one-star reviews on TripAdvisor.

The Azure Window was a 28-metre-tall limestone natural arch, located in Dwejra Bay on the island of Gozo in Malta. Game of Thrones fans will also recognize it as a GoT landmark as it was featured in the very first episode of the popular series during the wedding of Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo.

Due to natural erosion the formation collapsed completely in stormy weather on 8 March 2017 and now disappointed tourists are leaving one-star reviews after being taken by tour buses and guides to the former tourist site, where the famous rock formation is long gone.

Lesson of the story – plan your trip and itinerary ahead and check out blogs or forums to avoid such disappointment ☺️

We were lucky enough to see this attraction during our spring holiday in Malta in 2015.
