Located at 6000 feet above the sea level, St. Maritz looks like a beautiful painting with snow-covered mountains surrounded by lush green hills. This gorgeous city witnesses only 300 days of sunshine all around the year so even the summers are cool in St. Moritz. Most of the lakes freeze during winter months which make them ideal for snow polo. If you love skiing, the snow-covered alps offer some of the most scenic ski hills in the world. Did you know that St. Moritz is also declared as the UNESCO World Heritage site? St. Moritz came into light after the discovery of its mineral springs which made this town a summer spa spot around 3000 years ago.
