Lost In The Bustling And Quiet Berne

Berne is the capital most unlike the capital, it has no international atmosphere, the whole city stays in the ancient times. The ubiquitous bear is the spokesman of the city. The roofs of the old town houses were stacked with tiles, the stone pavement was mottled under foot, and the fountain in the middle of the street was murmuring, cupping its hands and sipping its cool sweetness. As the sunset clouds fly into the night, Berne breaks through the shackles of time to take us hurtling into the orbit of the middle ages. You may find the joy of slow life in this world heritage listed city.

The whole city of Berne is listed as a world heritage site. It has maintained its medieval style, quiet and old, as if forgotten by time. Switzerland for a long time have no fixed capital, November 28, 1848, Berne is classified as Swiss federal capital, becoming the center of the federal government and the national political and diplomatic, Switzerland’s former ruling class does not like European nobles have a king as the center of the power, can play a coordinated national call to action, Berne is several centuries xuan aristocratic family product of hegemony.

Many revolutionary activists have lived in Berne throughout history. Engels went to Berne in the autumn of 1848 to direct the Swiss workers’ movement. Lenin also stayed in simmelwald and kuntar near Berne from September 1914 to early 1916; Famous physicist Einstein published his theory of relativity here. The university of Berne, founded in 1834, is known for its study of cosmic rays. After the second world war, it became a cultural tourist destination, surrounded by the green river al, with alpine scenery and numerous museums of different types such as history, natural history, art and weapons.

Berne is a german-speaking swiss-speaking region where most people speak German, followed by English and Italian. “Never tell a joke to a Berne on a Friday, or the Berne will laugh at Sunday mass,” is a description of the slow, cautious reaction of the genevans.

Berne is a busy market, but there are no honking horns, no factories in the city, no motors and other noises, so there is no industrial pollution at all. In public places, people talk speaking out of turn whisper, do not see the phenomenon of loud call. No noise at midnight in uptown. Supermarkets and stores close around 7 p.m., and the law prohibits all businesses from opening on Sundays to ensure that every worker has enough time off. Garbage in the city is classified strictly and littering is punished.

Berne people love flowers. From the beginning of may until the end of the year, the lively market in the square is filled with flowers of unimaginable varieties and decorations made of various vegetables and plants. These colorful lights turn the whole city into a large garden.

Like many Swiss cities, even as the capital of Switzerland, the pace of life in Berne is very slow, the citizens pay attention to enjoyment and leisure, every sunny day, people go out in the sun, or take outdoor equipment, hiking and other outdoor activities.

I once read in a Swiss travel book a 1925 painting by Paul Klee called “goldfish.” the simple colors — pinkish purple, amber blue, vermilion and goose yolk — glow against a black background, like secrets buried at the bottom of the sea. Paul clay was born in Bern, the capital of Switzerland. In Berne there is the undulating Paul museum, where a large number of colorful and imaginative paintings are exhibited.
