...that the old town of Bern is an UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site? Since 1983 it has its place on the UNESCO list, which only includes cultural and natural sites of international significance. The old town of Bern gained this recognition due to the buildings dating from a variety of periods, including the 15th century arcades and the 16th century fountains. Even though most of the medieval town has been restored in the 18th century, it has retained its original character.
