Mr Monkey in Malmö, August 5th

"It looks a big enough square to me"

Mr Monkey had another quick look around Stortorget, admiring the buildings of different periods. By 1592 - only 56 or so years after it was created - they found that Stortorget wasn't big enough to be the main square of Malmö, so they built Lilla Torg as an overflow. Mr Monkey decided he didn't need to visit Lilla Torg again, so he went down Södergatan instead.
