Gustaf Adolfs torg ("Gustaf Adolf's square") is a town square located in central Gothenburg, Sweden. It was named Stortorget (the Big square) until 1854 when a statue of the founding father of Gothenburg, king Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden was raised. Surrounding the square are Gothenburg City Hall (the former stock exchange building), the law court (by Gunnar Asplund), and the main canal of Gothenburg.
