Photographer's Note

Hi dear TE friends

Place : St Moritz / Switzerland

Theme: (Trip) Charms of Europe (VII) – Lake St Moritz

At the shore of small Lake of St. Moritz (1822m).
Sankt Moritz is without doubt one of the most beautiful places in the canton of Grisons. Its lake is formed by the river Inn and its surroundings are a destination for nice excursions.

St. Moritz is considered the oldest and one of the most famous winter resorts in the world. Due to its favorable location residents enjoy over 300 days of sunshine a year. Every winter this alpine village hosts the "White Turf" horse race on the frozen Lake St. Moritz attended by the international Upper class.

Popular pastimes include skiing, snowboarding and hiking, and nearby there is also the world famous Cresta Run toboggan course.

The year-round population is 5600, with some 3000 seasonal employees supporting hotels and rental units with a total of 13,000 beds.

Is a very calm place, an elegant, with very happy people. However, the city is very expensive, as Switzerland is, with a high living standard.

The mountains seen in the background are the Alps. The waters of the lake are very blue -as blue as it can be seen here.

A path along the lake shore provides many romantic views like this

I hope you like it, a big hug to all of you TE friends
