As I think I mentioned in my last post, Bern is totally gorgeous. It's the capital of Switzerland, so it also has the government buildings (left), but also an amazingly preserved old city with arcades along the street (above), tons of statues, fountains (collage below), and decorative houses. It reminded me of a mix of some cities I've seen in France (Metz, Nancy) and Luxembourg. The city is almost too well preserved though. Switzerland, stop being so rich and fancy.
