Gustav Adolf Square

Gustav Adolfs torg is the Gustav Adolf Square, a public square close to the Swedish Parliament. It is named after King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden and in the middle of this nice square, there is a statue of Gustav II Adolf which was erected in 1796. Encircling the square there are important buildings like the Royal Opera, the house of the Swedish State Department, house of the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs, house of the Swedish Ministry of Defence, the dance museum etc. apart from the Parliament which is quite close by and the Royal Palace. The square is a bit crowded. One thing that impressed me in the statue of king Gustav was the statue of the armour placed on the bottom of the pedestal. Look at the second picture.
