Merdeka Square is at the heart of downtown Medan.

It is an Esplanade, a rectangular square surrounded by several elegant Dutch colonial buildings, the railway station, the post office as well as many commercial bank buildings.

There is an old row of eating places opposite the railway station and a new row of restaurants and Western fastfood on the side opposite the City Hall.

Address: Jalan Balai Kota, Downtown Medan
