Switzerland's capital is relatively small but boasts a charming, medieval feel. In fact, Bern has one of the best-preserved medieval districts in Europe, and the Gothic cathedral, 13th-century clock tower, picturesque fountains and cobblestone streets of Bern's Old Town almost make it seem like the city is a fairytale world that's come alive. Bern's Old Town has retained its original character so strongly that it's been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for many years.
Bern is an old city, founded in 1191. Legend has it the city received its name when its founder killed a bear nearby, but even if that's not true, Bern has long been fascinated with bears, even incorporating a black bear into its municipal coat-of-arms. For the last 500 years or so Bern featured bear pits in its city centre, now being replaced by a proper bear park.
