Gustav Adolf square is one of my most frequented bus hubs and one day when I had to go to the library, which wasn’t that far away, I decided to take a shortcut through the park nearby. To my surprise, it wasn’t a regular park but a cemetery. It is not very old — established in 1820 and still in use (!), although I haven’t witnessed any funerals there. The plots must be expensive…

In any case, it’s a very nice and quiet oasis in the town center. Not that Malmö doesn’t have enough parks, but this one has a very serene atmosphere. People still do come here to take care of the graves of their great-grandparents and to water the plants around. Whenever you walk trough, you want to slow down a bit, look around, maybe read some of the names on the gravestones. In the center of the park, there is a statue of something that looks like a man at the end of a rainbow – not sure how else to describe it; when you see it, you’ll know what I meant. Apparently, its sister is in a park in Stockholm made by the same sculptor, and despite being hundreds of kilometres away, both figures are looking towards each other.
