Bern is the capital of Switzerland and Bern, located in the Midwest of Switzerland. The Ale River divides the city into two parts: the old city on the West Bank and the new city on the East bank. Seven broad bridges across the Ale River connect the old city with the new city. In Bern, old-fashioned, monuments can be seen everywhere. From Shunyi Street to the bend of the Al River, you cross the bridge to Bern's oldest area. In the 14th century Nedag Church stands the statue of the founder of Berne, Duke Grongen. Bronze reliefs on the gates, which depict the story of Jesus, are still preserved today. Berne Cathedral, situated on the Bank of the Al River, is a typical Gothic building with magnificent shape. The old city of Bern has a world-famous arcade. From Hospital Street in front of the railway station to the old bell tower in Clem Street, the archway is a typical medieval building with unique structure.
