Stortorget (the Big Square) is a square in Stockholm, Sweden.


Stortorget (the Big Square) is the oldest square in Stockholm and dates back to the 11th century or the 13th century. The Danish King Christian II ordered a massacre called the Stockholm Bloodbath and took place in the square in 1520. Consequently the massacre became the trigger for the separation of Sweden and Denmark. Today the square is frequented by tens of thousands of tourists annually. Furthermore the square is traditionally renowned for its annual Christmas market offering traditional handicrafts and food.
