I would like to see some images of squares in your city. Also, what's your city's main square?

In HK we have Statue Square which is at the heart of Central.

MAYO SQUARE - BUENOS AIRES , ARGENTINA

This is Argentina's main square. Big part of the film ¨Evita¨ was done there.

Yonge-Dundas Square is considered by many to be the "heart" of the city, but its grotesque construction and overabundance of advertising may or may not leave something to be desired.





Despite its downfalls Yonge-Dundas Square is a hugely popular part of the city. It's colourful, vibrant, and alive with music, shopping and eating. I really like it, but for those against consumerism and bright lights, it's probably not the ideal spot.

I'd deffinetly say the City Hall Square!




As nice as the other is ( my favorite square ) it's just not as "main" as the other - people rarely use it for meeting point unless you have to go to some of the things on the square itself...

@ilcapo,
One of yor pics showing Medborgarplatsen is actually showing Södermalmstorg/Slussen. And the pic from Östermalmstorg isn't correct either.. :)
