Cities linked by TGV Lyria: Bern
Bern, the capital of Switzerland, lies at the heart of the country and is the only city to have retained its medieval appearance. This means there are plenty of historical sites to visit. With a 6-km long shopping promenade made up of numerous arcades, the old centre is listed on Unesco's World Heritage list. Its founder, Berthold V, Duke of Zähringen, apparently gave the city its name after killing a bear during a hunting party. The bear thus became the symbol of the city of Bern (bear is translated as "Bär" in German).
