The Gataplatsen is situated at the top of Avenyn and has a statue of the sea god Poseidon.The staue is circled by the Gothenburg concert hall,city theatre,museum of art and the Hasselblad centre.The view back down the Avenyn from here is a bit special.

We stumbled on this historic public square as a result of following a main avenues (Avenyn) on the way to Haga. Surrounded by interesting buildings and has a lovely statue. The walk along Avenyn is equally interesting and impressive.

From downtown walk a few blocks up Kungssportsavenyen and you come to Gotaplatsen Square. This is a great square with a giant statue of Poseidon. It is one of the most famous landmarks of Gothenburg. This is also the location of the Art Museum, Concert Hall and City Theatre. While it is beautiful during the day we were told it is even better at night with the statue and fountains illuminated. Sadly we had to get back to our ship.

Göteborg, initially, confused me as to where it’s city centre truly is. For me, it’s a large city spanning a good deal of space with no direct centre and numerous small hubs and collections of shops and restaurants throughout. However, upon finding Gotaplatsen, this felt more where all the action can be found. The long boulevard type street with a museum atop some steps and grand Poseidon statue is a hive for people to eat, drink and shop. There are two great water features and lots going on. Be sure to visit this area of Göteborg.

I found this attraction on my way to the museum. On the bus I was told it is the statue of Poseidon. It’s big, attractive and fitting to guard the museum.

This is the beginning The Avenue. A great place to start your sightseeing trip of the city.
A large fountain and statue of Poseidon ( where many celebrations, parades and graduation parties take place) there is the concert hall and museum and a great place to take some photos.
The avenue is an awesome place to walk and people watch. Filled with cafes restaurants and boutiques. At night it is a place for the bar scene.

This is where everyone gathers when the Indians became Swedish Champions, when having the finale in Göteborgs Kalaset...

An androgynous statue in the middle of a plaza that instead of inspiring for culture - it has the museum of art on one side, and a lot of other cultural buildings all around or nearby - it is only smell bad and is full of garbage. Sometimes is OK but a lot of the times it is has drunkards and groups of strange people accosting passers.
It can be a nice place worth of visiting if something will be done to remove the smell and garbage and if ... Until then, go and see the art museum and take care in the plaza.
