The Swiss Federal Parliament Building is one of the political activity centers in Switzerland. It was designed by architect Hans William Orr. Its circular roof is very striking and shines in the sunshine. On the front of the building is a statue of human head, cow head and sheep head. It is said that under the square is the Treasury of the major banks.
The Federal Building, the Federal Government and the Federal Parliament are located in the building. This is a group of large palace-style buildings built of granite. Built from 1852 to 1857, it is a Renaissance style. Its unique copper-green roof contrasts sharply with the tone of the whole city. Switzerland used to have no fixed capital for a long time. On November 28, 1848, Bern was designated as the capital of the Swiss Confederation and became the seat of the federal government and the national political and diplomatic center.
Bern is the capital of Switzerland. Of course, the Federal Parliament Building is right here. The building is still very grand. One detail is whether there is a gate or a place like a children's paradise in the main entrance. On the square, it must be impossible to put it in China, which is equivalent to putting an amusement park at the gate of the Great Hall of the People. Democracy in Switzerland can be seen.
The Federal Capitol has tall beams and green domes. We didn't enter. We stopped and rested in the square in front of the building. The square in front of the building is a place for local people to gather and relax. In summer, there are beautiful fountains and wonderful lighting performances. It is said that winter will turn into a huge skating rink. There will also be a variety of activities, as well as the classic Berne market (onion market) and Christmas market.
