This is going to be a beautiful square at some stage, but at the moment it's a complete mess with huge construction happening here. Better wait for a year or so when it's finished.

The statue of the city's founder, the viking Olav Tryggvason, towers above the square, which in itself says a lot. When we were there it was full of people as the food festival was in full swing and it was great.
