(the Maria Square) is a square and a city park in Södermalm,
The square faces the street of Hornsgatan to the north,
and the street of S:t Paulsgatan to the south.
The street Swedenborgsgatan, named after Emanuel Swedenborg,
starts there and continues southwards.
A bust of the same Swedenborg is also situated in the park.
The central fountain is crowned by a sculpture by Anders Henrik Wissler,
Tors fiske (Thor fishing), depicting the Norse god
Thor slaying the sea serpent Jörmungandr.
I used to come here a lot because I used to run a gallery
for about a year and a half in nearby Maria Prástgárdsgaten 2.
