  King Karl is to your right
by bpacker

Other than looking out for the nightingale at the tip of the fountain, look out for another historic marker of Malmö, the bronzy-green statue of King Karl X Gustav in Stortorget. Like any other royal European statue, this chap is green and on horseback. So what's the big deal you might ask? A helluvabig deal if you consider that this Swedish King took back Malmö from the Danes in 1658. Malmö, along with the southern parts of Sweden, actually belonged to Denmark.
