A bit too large, open and bland for our taste. We couldn't find anything that would make us want to spend time in this square.

Pretty square, probably one of the most interesting points in the city. It is well kept, with flowers all over it. There was an event going on so it was pretty busy.

The square in the daytime is a peaceful place from which to explore the older section of Malmo. There are statues, historic buildings and open space. In the nighttime, though, the bars, and pubs become the focus and there are many, many folks enjoying their nighttime pleasures. A bit loud for some of us.

This may be an interesting place, but for me it was nothing special. I'm not sure whether it represent any real Swedish thing!

This is a wonderful square with the usual statue and the best fountain ever. We walked through several times and the fountain was not always running. In the past, the water supply was under the square. Now the fountain uses that water. It is a short walk from Central Station and well worth a visit. There are some really cool... More

This square has really nice building and a very unique fountain, there are a few pictures of it and it's really original for me.

Calm and quiet pedestrian square in the heart of Malmo. Has some lovely historical architecture. I liked the pollarded trees sourounding the statue of King Karl X Gustav of Sweden. I arrived on the train from and enjoyed the tranquillity after the bustle of Copenhagen.

The Main Square (Stortogret) is just 5 minute walk from Central Railway Station. Nice Scandinavian small square with fountain, statues and surrounding by historical buildings. There is City Hall here. Slottsträdgården park is in walk distance from it.

My first impression of Malmo was made up of its warm, beautiful coffee shops that were straight out of a designer decor magazine. On a cold, windy day in November, you can imagine how lovely it is to see the bright halogen lighting exuding out of coffee shops where people are sitting and taking a well-deserved fika (Swedish break for...

The west side of the square is arguably the most picturesque and gives a good idea of what the square looked like during the heyday of imperial Sweden in the seventeenth century! Some lovely architecure involved! '10
