This square is in the middle of the town. There isn’t anything overly special about it, it is quite plain and boring. There are some restaurants and shops around it.

Nice square in the city, with plenty of shops/coffee places and plaque on the wall which the band Lordi have inscribed (fun thing to do is have a photo taken with your hand in one of Lordi's handprints in the wall!)

There are fun shops and tons of restaurants in this area. Just walk around and enjoy. Souvenir hunters dream. Dress warm and have fun.

When we were there in the winter there was ice skating and an ice slide, at a reasonable price. There are also market stalls which sell various stuff.

Nice place surrounded by shops, easy to walk, Christmas decoration at the time of our visit and music from speakers.

Passed this nice square everyday. Booths were selling all sorts of souvenirs. There was small ice skating rink there as well. Good to have a walk there.

Kids loved the snow piled up every few metres. They wanted to slide down them all! Picturesque in the snow, this has lots of restaurants and Lapland safari places - much like a colder, snowier Kathmandu! Still, in and of itself, it’s just a street.

Really enjoyed walking in this square each day and our daughter loved climbing the snow piles and sliding down the other side!
