Kungsgatan, the "Street King", is a very lively shopping street in Stockholm. It is near to the Kungsbron bridge and Stureplan square, which is the meeting point of the fashionable young people to go out to nightclubs and restaurants at the weekend. In the heart of the City, in the business district and city banks, Kungsgatan is distinguished by its tall buildings, which measure more than 60 meters in height. There are two major bridges on the street that are actually high streets that intersect with Kungsgatan. There is also Hötorget, which is a square with a nice underground market (Hotorgshallen), with stalls selling fruit, vegetables and flowers, but also on certain days antiques and flea markets. It's where Konserhuset building is - a classical concert hall. In the way of restaurants, there are not many, it is rather a place for shopping, unless you go to Stureplan, which offers a good selection for lunch and dinner. The bridges across Kungsgatan each have sculptures depicting the king which are very impressive.
Medborgarplasten is the most central part of the island of Södermalm situated in southern Stockholm. It is in line with the main streets, and this is the place where most of the shops, offices, businesses and public buildings are. Around the square there are many restaurants that come to life at night, even in winter, as the Swedes have an increasing taste for the nightlife. There are Asian, Italian, and French restaurants, among many others which offer hot chocolate and pancakes outside of regular lunch times. The place is, of course, radically different depending on whether you visit in summer or winter. In winter, there is a box that is filled with water in order to make an ice-skating rink which is open to all. There is a monument in memory of murdered politician Lingth Anna, who was murdered in 2003 in the centre of the square. Next to Gotgatan street there is a metro station which opened in 1933. There is also a public library, a cinema, a gym, and the Saluhall market which is one of the most colourful markets of the city.
