The story of... IN ENGADIN ST. MORITZ

In fact, history can be encountered at every turn -  for example, in the typical Engadin architecture that lends most of the villages their unmistakable character. Or in the Romansh language, actively fostered and still spoken by a remarkably large proportion of the popoulation. But history also lives on in the form of customs and traditions, such as Chalandamarz and Schlitteda, which locals are happy to share with visitors - but which are by no means celebrated simply for their benefit.
