Swiss Saint Moritz is right considered to be a king of the alpine ski resorts. Aristocratic, cosmopolitan and respectable are the definitions of Saint Moritz that is favorite leisure place of the royal dynasties members, billionaires, politicians and show-business stars. 

Saint Moritz (panoramas No.3 and No.9) is situated on the banks of the same named lake, in the region of Engadin in Graubünden canton at a height of 1856 meters above the sea level. Today the settlement itself counts 5600 inhabitants and in the height of the season there are 3000 touristic service employees and thousands of tourists more. There are good conditions for experienced downhill skiers: 36 "black" skiing tracks and 136 "red" skiing tracks; and many opportunities for snowboarders, amateurs of plain skiing and skating. The total longitude of the regional downhill skiing tracks is 350 km and plain skiing tracks is 150 km.

There is an opinion, that Saint Moritz is the "lightest" Swiss resort. There are 322 sunny days a year. That is why there is no lack in tourists after the ski season is over: in summer, late spring and early autumn. When it is warm tourists are interested in sail, walk and bikes enjoying astounding views, thermal waters and elite leisure service.

Right from Saint Moritz it's possible to go up by the cog railway at a height of 2486 meters (Corviglia station, panorama No.8). In the same panorama can be viewed Piz Noir (the height is 3057 meters). The experienced downhill skiers like it for its steep track of an upper level of complexity.

Several comfortable downhill ski regions are closed to Corviglia and one of them is Piz Corvatsch (3451 meters, panorama No.1). It is one of the most beautiful places for the skiing and the going down from the peak is on a glacier.

Piz Bernina (panorama No.2) rises 4048 meters above the sea level and this makes it the highest point of the Eastern Alps. And at a height of 3600 meters there is a mountain hut Mark and Rose was found as a key point for rest of alpinists. They usually go down there in the end of the route. In spite of its abounded view, the hut is a place of a really civilized rest. There is a maintenance staff all the time and it serves all the travelers independently on the hut's fullness. And another thing that the comfortable rooms may be reserved and then you will rest in an unheated shed on the simple beds.

On the South-West of Graubünden canton there is a wonderful Alpine valley Bregaglia. Nowadays Italy owns its bottom and Switzerland owns it top where artificial Lake Albigna is located. It was created in 1959 for the hydroelectric power plants functioning. Among the snow-capped peaks a wall of weir unexpectedly appears and then — the same idyllic sceneries of Switzerland with its toy houses and great mountain masses. This scenery can be viewed in panoramas No.4 and No.5.

In the sixth panorama there are two highland lakes: Silvaplauna and Silsersee as well as surrounding villages. Thanks for the stable winds, blowing from Maloja Pass, Silvaplauna Lake is popular among amateurs of windsurfing, kites and yachtsmen. And in the beginning of XIX century in one of the local villages a famous German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche was living during 7 years. He walked so frequently along the bank of Silvaplauna Lake enjoying surrounding unearthly beauty that in its honor now there is a memorial tablet on the bank of the lake.

In the Engadin Valley, 5 km far from Saint Moritz, at a height of 1797 meters above the sea level there is a small airport (with one takeoff and landing strip) — Samedan — the most high located European airport. Before the regular flights were realized but now because of the frequent catastrophes they are cancelled. But it's still possible to arrive in Samedan: by private jet. Because of the rarefied air, especially in summer, it's hard for the low-powered light helicopters, which has arrived from the plain, to take off in Samedan and go back. When there is much weight or full of fuel tanks, a helicopter has to fly not vertically up, as usually, but in an airplane manner: drive a takeoff strip, making speed higher and speeding up gradually, then take off and begin to ascend.

The thing is a normal cargo weight at a usual height on the plain becomes extra heavy in the conditions of rarefied highland air; and there is lack of a helicopter engine lifting force to fly vertically.

You can view Samedan Airport in panorama No.7.

"Great work! But a lot of mountain labels are wrong. For example, in the Bernina's panorama, Piz Corvatsch is Pizzo Scalino; Piz Alv is Piz Roseg.
Best regards from Italy!"

Stefano Caldera, Italy

Varvara, AirPano: Dear Stefano, thanks a lot for your recommendations! We agree with you and would like to make changes. Can you, please, mark your notes on each pano? And soon these changes will appear on our web-site.
