This lovely town square has an impressive statue, is where city hall is found and acts as a great meeting place. Once of Göteborg’s centrepieces, the statue of Gustav II Adolf properly reflects his importance in establishing Sweden as a proper military influence.

The Gustav Adolfo statue is in the centre of Gothenburg and takes prime position in a square centre. The statue is near the canal and local bus and tram stops so you will pass it and it is worth a photo.
