This place could be better if no cars where in the picture. You may prefer the other place ( absolutely car free :D ) called Lilla Torg. Go there also if you like printed ads...

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

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.
