The City of Fountains

The charming capital of Switzerland is located on a sandstone ridge and it is surrounded on three sides by the Aare River. Due to its well preserved medieval Old Town, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A popular legend suggests that the city’s founder named the city after the first animal he saw while hunting. He saw a bear and named the city Bern, which is the pronunciaton of bear in his local dialect.
