Holiday resorts and holiday regions in Switzerland

St. Moritz is about one of the most well-known holiday resorts in the world. This spa resort is situated on the Engadine mountain side, facing south, at an altitude of 5,624 ft (1,856 m above sea level) in the middle of a landscape dotted with lakes of the Upper Engadine.
 
With its Romansh heritage, its proximity to Italy and mostly German-speaking population, St. Moritz is characterized by the influences from three different cultures. It originally gained acclaim through the mineral springs, which have been known for their curative effects for some 3,000 years.
 

Apart from its picture book location, St. Moritz offers an attractive blend of natural beauty, culture, sport – activity and relaxation.
