18 Bear Statue at Bernisches Historisches Museum in Bern, Switzerland

You will see several statues of bears throughout Bern, Switzerland, like this one near the entrance of the Bernisches Historisches Museum. The bear became the town’s namesake in 1191 and has been their symbol since the 16th century. Live bears used to reside in a pit called Bärengraben until the BärenPark or Bear Park was built for them along the River Aare in 2009.
