    Chur is the capital of Graubünden, a canton located in the east of Switzerland. The town of Chur boasts almost 35,000 inhabitants. It's an old city, having existed at least as early as Roman times, when it was called Curia Raetorum and served a largely military function. Archaeologists' data shows that humans inhabited the area since about 3500 BCE, long before the Romans existed. The city was prominent enough by the Middle Ages to house a bishopric.Many of Chur's historical buildings have been preserved, attracting tourists into the present day. Attractions of old Chur include the Cathedral Church of St. Luzius, the Bishops Palace, and the Episcopal Seminary.
