What to see and do in Bern, Switzerland



The Swiss capital is a very unassuming and charming place, one might not think of it as the capital from first sight, however the same logic applies to the country as a whole, unassuming yet impressive. While Switzerland is often equated with the industrious and trend setting efficiency of modern life, Bern is a bit more relaxed.
