Davos Resort, located on the east side of Switzerland at the heart of Graubünden, rose into fame in the early 1990s due to hosting the World Economic Forum, an annual event generally conducted during the winter season by International politicians and financers. Davos divides into two parts; the Platz and the Dorf. Platz is for commercial activities such as hotel businesses and shops, while Dorf is the place for accessing the Ski slopes.
