This bear pit, located in the UNESCO World Heritage City of Berne, Switzerland was originally built in 1857. However, there are records of bears in the city dating back to 1441. As of 2009, this pit no longer contains bears. They are now located about one hundred feet away in a park adjacent to the river, as shown below.
