A boring square?

 

One of the largest squares in Copenhagen, Toftegårds Plads in Valby, looks more like a parking space without the cars than a place to meet or a place where things are happening. A few years ago it was used as a hub for the bus lines, but after that was changed nothing much has happened there. Or rather, there has been the big new redecorating that the square screams for, because a few things are happening there. At winter there's an ice skating rink there and in summer there's a flea market each weekend. And then there's a thing like the Galore Urban Art Festival last weekend. More than 200 Danish and international artists, music, graffiti and other art was the core of the festival.
