Lilla Torg (Little Square), Malmo (must see)

As its name suggests, Little Square is a small but charming square. The square was created in 1590 as a marketplace square. Shoppers would visit the square to buy daily household goods. Local maids would shop for meat, freshly baked bread, fish, and general groceries.

The square is paved with natural stones and invites locals and tourists to stay and enjoy the cozy atmosphere.

Little Square features old houses, boutique shops, outdoor cafes, friendly restaurants, and intimate bars. Visitors will enjoy shopping at the Swedish shops and exploring Scandi style fashion, and admire the centuries old houses in the surrounding area.

Little Square is known for its nightlife. Check out Drumbar, Malmo's only Scottish pub. Moosehead Bar often shows international sports. Mello Yello has a yellow outdoor seating area and is one of Malmo's most popular spots for eating, drinking, and people-watching.

Hedmanska Garden is located on the south side of the square. This half-timbered house dates to the 1590s. The house's courtyard is home to the Form/Design Center, which features a gallery and exhibitions.
