See

At the heart of Malmo lie two squares, called appropriately, the Big Square (Stortorget) and the Little Square (Lilla torg), and directly connected at one corner.

  • At the center of the Big Square is a statue of King Karl X Gustav of Sweden, who took the city from Danish dominion. The ornate Malmo City Hall (built in 1546) is on the east side, and in the northwest corner is Kockska Huset, the house of Jorgen Kock, a German immigrant who became mayor of the city and achieved wealth simply and directly: by taking control of the city mint.
  • The Little Square is the place for socializing and dining, with the edges taken up by various restaurants' outdoor tables. In the winter the square becomes a skating rink.

Currently it houses a history museum, art museum, aquarium, and terrarium. Sharing the castle grounds are other Malmo Museums facilities such as the Science and Maritime House and the Commandant's House.
