Would you like to visit the oldest resort? #stmoritz #Switzerland

A post shared by Lingofacts (@lingofacts) on

St Moritz is Switzerland’s most famous ‘exclusive’ winter resort: glitzy, pricey, fashionable and, above all, the place to be seen – it’s the place for an all-round winter holiday with an unrivaled array of different diversions, including such wacky pursuits as polo, golf and cricket on snow and gourmet and music festivals.

In 1864, hotel pioneer Johannes Badrutt opened the first winter resort in St. Moritz. It is considered the oldest ski resort in the world. He offered his guest free accommodations if the winter weather was bad. The town has hosted the Winter Olympics twice in 1928 and 1948.
