ST. MORITZ is registered as a national Swiss heritage site (for its Segantini Museum).

St Moritz is one of the oldest and most famous winter resorts in the world. Situated in Switzerland, in the vicinity of the tallest peak in the Eastern Alps, St Moritz has a surprisingly high number of sunny days per year – over 300. It was a Winter Olimpic Games venue in 1928 and 1948 and it has also been the scene of numerous ski and skibob competitions. The frozen St Moritz Lake is the venue of a yearly horse race.

Segantini Museum shelters the work of the Italian artist (born in 1858, he died in Switzerland, in 1899) who is also known as the painter of the Alps. He was animated by great passion for the beauty of these mountains and the special way in which light reflects on them.
