Switzerland Trivia

What Is The Capital Of Switzerland?

Switzerland does not have an official capital city. When Switzerland became a country in 1848, it was decided that the country would have no official capital city in an effort to award every territory in the country equal importance. However, Bern was selected to host the nation's federal government, becoming the de facto capital.
