Saint Moritz

ca 5147

The town, named in honour of Saint Maurice, is known from at least 12th century and always had visitors due to its climate (there are 300 sunny days per year on the average). It's hard to believe now, but until 1864 visitors came only in summer. Then, the local hotel pioneers came with revolutionary idea of reimbursing travel costs to first winter visitors if they are not satisfied with their trips. Since then, Saint Moritz transformed itself into real winter destination and is one of three places in the world that hosted not one, but two Winter Olympics (1928 and 1948).
