Springtime in Bern
Not many cities have managed to retain their historic features quite as successfully as Bern, the capital of Switzerland. The old town of Bern is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and thanks to its 6 kilometres of arcades (the locals refer to them as "Lauben"), boasts one of the longest weather-sheltered shopping promenades in Europe.
