Sergels Torg is the central square of Stockholm. All lines of the city metro cross under it, so crowds are always present here.
The square Sergels Torg was built in the 1990's, and it was named after the court sculptor and artist Johan Tobias Sergel, a mentor of the king Gustav III, who had a workshop in the XVIII century at this place. There are two monuments to Sergel in Stockholm: one is located in the Eastern part of the square and the other is in the pedestrian street that runs North from the square.
One of the most popular buildings at Sergels Torg square is the Cultural center (Kulturhuset) with many galleries, theatrical venues, panoramic cafes and shops. There are several cafes with budget according to Swedish standards prices. You just need to take a seat at one of the huge panoramic windows overlooking the bustle of the big city and enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of beer.
There is also a touristic center in Kulturhuset, where you can book a hotel, a tour or just figure out how to get to any of the sights of Stockholm. Here you can also buy tickets to concerts and performances, and the Stockholm card, which you can use for unlimited access to public transport, free admission to the main sights of Stockholm and get discounts.
The center of the square is a huge deepening, in the side walls of which shops and restaurants were planned, but the place was unpopular. There is an entrance to the metro Sergelstorg.
The outdoor underground passage is covered with black-and-white plates. Musicians gather here in the evenings. A glass column that is lit up from the inside stands in the center of the square. It is particularly impressive at night.
The biggest Department store of the city Åhléns is situated in the corner of the square Sergels Torg. There is the largest Scandinavia's Department of perfumes and jewelry here, as well as a large selection of fashionable clothes.
Sergels Torg is a place of friendly meetings and walks, as well as of hosting various events, including festivals, folk festivals and rallies.
