    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Scuol is the main city of the area where "Romansh" is spoken.
    Romansh is one of the 4 official languages of Switzerland (together with German, French and Italian); it belongs to the "Rhaeto-Romance" languages, heritage of the Roman domination over the area. It's spoken by less than 1% of the Swiss population, mostly resident in the Alps area.
    Other similar dialects can be found in Northern Italy (Dolomite area, Friuli).
