The world-famed winter sports resort (Winter Olympics 1928 and 1948) of St Moritz (Romansch San Murezzan), in the midst of the Upper Engadine, is in two parts. St Moritz Dorf - a "village" which has all the appearance of a town, with its large and palatial hotels (here on the picture)- is situated on a sunny terrace, sheltered from the north wind, above the St Moritzer See (Lake of St Moritz, 1,768 m/5,801ft), through which the river Inn flows from south to north. St Moritz Bad, on the valley floor at the southwest end of the lake, has iron-bearing springs of high carbonic acid content which were already being used in Bronze Age times.
