Bern, Switzerland. This is a lovely, tranquil city built on cliffs. There is a beautiful park in the middle of the city that sits right on the stone ramparts. Views from the park are splendid. In this shady park are wonderful permanent stone chessboard tables for the entertainment of residents and guests.
The Federal Palace is the name of the building in Bern in which the Swiss Federal Assembly and the Federal Council are housed. It consists of a central parliament building and two wings housing government departments and a library.
