Chur is also said to be the city with the longest settlement history north of the Alps (pop: 35'000). Locals ensure me that it is the oldest city in Switzerland as the city actually dates back to 9,000 BC!
The Old City is quite extensive with many pleasant pedestrian streets and many historical buildings. More than 300 stores and shops all concentrated in this area, which keep the city center lively. The nighlife is also concentrated there along the Untere Gasse and Welschdorfli.
One thing which surpise me is the size of the 800-year old Chur Cathedral compare to the St Martin's Church (the one on the picture). I have learnt that 41% of the inhabitants of the diocesan town of Chur are Protestant, which explained this fact.
Chur is located to a strategic corner of the Alps and surrounded by the Calanda (on the picture), Pizokel and Mittenberg mountains
