The lakeside resort town of St. Moritz, at the height of 5,910 feet, nestled in the Albula Alps of Switzerland, is a favourite holiday destination of the discerning lot. The luxurious Alpine resort has seen generations of jetsetters partake in skiing, snowboarding, tobogganing, bobsledding, curling, ice-skating, polo on ice and hiking. The town has even hosted two Winter Olympics, in 1928 and 1948. But if a tranquil state is something you choose over an adrenaline rush, St. Moritz offers enough and more!
