Saint Moritz
Saint Moritz or Saint Mauritius (French: Saint-Moritz, German: Sankt-Moritz, Italian: San Maurizio, Romanesque: San Murezzan), is a commune of Switzerland in Canton Grisons with about 5,029 inhabitants.

Located in the Engadina region, it extends over an area of ​​28.69 km², with a population density of 175 inhab / km². It borders the following communes: Bever, Celerina / Schlarigna, Samedan, Silvaplana.

The official language in this commune is German, with Italian being the second language spoken by 22% of the inhabitants, and 5.4% speaking Romansh.
Located on the “ceiling of Europe” and surrounded by the Alps, St. Moritz is a pleasure for the eyes. The place has a planetary fame as an elegant and exclusive ski resort, with strong appeal also for warmer days. With an average of 322 sunny days a year, it is a cosmopolitan city where many languages ​​are spoken, thanks to its proximity to Germany and Italy.
Although a pioneer of alpine winter tourism, the great discovery is that St. Moritz is a great destination in every season. In warmer months, the place is home to sailing competitions and water sports for the whole family. For colder but snow-free climates, golf, electric bikes and horseback riding uphill are pleasurable activities. The hot springs ensure recovery after sporting efforts.

It is divided into two regions: Saint-Moritz-Dorf (1,822 meters above sea level), the city's main headquarters, and Saint-Moritz-Bad (1,774 meters) near the lake. Both offer a wide range of leisure, shopping, cultural events, hotels, restaurants and sports. What few know is that the city first gained fame in the mid-19th century as a summer retreat thanks to its hot springs, much sought after for long summer holidays.
Via Gastronomica is a very special experience that combines the variety of local cuisine with the beauty of Engadine's mountain landscape.
It has a very favorable climate, known as “champagne climate”, with a lot of sunny days a year, which attracts skiers and snowboarders from all over the planet, who count on their blue days and seasons for their seasons. Lots of snow on the slopes.
