27th August – St. Moritz, Bernina Express, Poschiavo

2010.08.28. 07:04 Eva Borsos

We boarded the Bernina Express in St. Moritz, which is celebrating this year it s one hundred year anniversary. The total length is 122 km passing through 55 tunnels and 196 bridges and viaducts between Chur (the capital of the canton) and Tireno, which is in Italy with a extension line to Davos. It is part of the World Heritage Site.

You might can spot the Herzlichen Wilkommen Road Scholar sign on our first class reserved carriage.

 

 

 

We passed some glaciers and we reached the highest point of our Journey the 2253 m (7391 ft) Bernina Pass. The weather was very dramatic and quite chilly outside, so we did not feel sorry that we were not accommodated in one of the open carriages what is very special and you need to make arrangements far in advance.

 

 

 

 

 

The Bernina Pass is a natural water shed, water from the northern side goes to the Danube then to the Black sea. Water on the south goes to the Adriatic. This waterfall will end up in the Adriatic, since we crossed the pass.
