The buildings in the old city, dating from a variety of periods, include 15th-century arcades and 16th-century fountains. Bern is a great example of a city that has conserved its medieval structure while responding, to the increasingly complex functions of a capital city of a modern State.
The most unique thing about this city is it fully loaded with fabulous colorful fountains. The medieval urban centers have always centered around the fountains in Bern. The colorful figures and columns of fountains brighten up the grey of the long rows of building facades. Bern has over 100 fountains and out of these fountains, eleven fountains still retain the original picture with their beautiful figures.
