No way! Could this be the narrowest street on the Maltese Islands?
Owners can touch the other side of the road from their own house…

Imagine if you lived so close to your neighbour that you could literally grab their hand while still standing in your own house. Can’t imagine it yet? Well, it exists! And it’s nowhere else but in Malta’s beautiful sister isle of Gozo!

A Facebook post by Kappa Vision has shared an image of Triq id-Dejqa in Gozo’s historical capital city of Victoria. The name, which translates to Narrow Street, seems to be a good fit, wouldn’t you say so?!

Lined with houses on both sides, according to the post, the street is so narrow that people living on either side can extend their arms out of their windows and be able to touch the façade of the houses opposite the road. How about that! We wonder what it would be like to walk through it in pairs…

We’re sure there are many undiscovered quirky streets like this one in various locations around the islands, and yet the lovely Gozo never seizes to amaze us!

Do you know of any other super narrow streets?
