I loved so much all of the photos you shared in the Your Cities Landmarks thread - I would like to see your city's main squares! Please share them!

My last city had a large park which was a left over from the 1974 World's Fair. I suppose it would be the town square since downtown did not have one.

Riverfront park:

We don't really have a main square. Technically Dublin is my city, though its very much a love hate relationship. I am a country person. The first three are St. Stephens Green, the second is O' Connell Street and the third is the front of Trinity College, based in the heart of the city and also where myself and Dophin go to college.

Free Vacation?
 
Take a Virtual Reality Tour and click yourself through my city, Randers, Denmark.  More than 80 panoramas - all 360 deg.
An old medieval city with old half timebered houses, old churches, narrow streets and squares.
You can even enter some of the buildings - like the Town Hall in the picture.
 
Click the picture to take the tour - we start at the Town Hall in the center of the city.

Most definitely not. It's nothing more than a tourist trap from the Castle down to St Giles. From there down to Holyrood it's mainly small museums,  pubs and sandwich shops.

The "main centre" is a bit hard to define but it includes a lot more than than the royal mile.
