  • This is the main square and it is picturesque in a way you'd expect for a scandinavian town. Easy to find find in the centre of the old town. 
  • Leaving this South walk shopping road towards the central station square. Statue of marching while playing instruments too. On weekdays during the day because of man the streets at all without the restaurants around wasn't too crowded. It was a quiet square.

  • For the tourist, never saw city squares in Northern Europe, the largest square in Malmö will look quite interesting. For the more discerning travelers it is quite common for the local square and small square near far more attractive for its restaurants. All in all, not bad, but not worth linger there.
