Bear Pit

Interesting
Since the early 16C, the bears of Bern have been a popular attraction and are visited by tourists and residents of the city, who come every day, armed with treats. The bears have the run of the vast park alongside the River Aare, as well as their own bear pit, which is considered a historic monument.
