It was a lovely day, sun shining. Walked around the square. Unfortunately there seems to be a lot of litter, especially cigarette butts jammed in cobbled areas. Disgusting!!

This place seemed pretty dull compared to the Little square nearby. There wasn't a whole lot going on in the square itself, but some of the more populated shopping streets projected from this point.

This is not the most attractive square in Malmo.However, it is worth passing through to visit the well-known old pharmacy, which is still in use. Also, nearby is the more atmospheric "Little Square"

This is the main square of Malmö. City hall, fountains and statues around, and of course cafés as well. Apoteket Lejonet - Lion Pharmacy is one of the attraction, beeing the oldest in the town.

Accidentally hit the square at a blues festival, great music! It was my only time in Malmo and a perfect day to come!

We visited Malmo on a very cold and windy day; if it were nicer, we might have spent more time exploring the square. Surrounded by large old-looking buildings, you could almost imagine how it might have looked hundreds of years ago. This would be a great place to visit (and probably see some entertainment!) in warmer weather.
