Götaplatsen was built in 1923 for the World Exhibition the same year. The large statue of the sea god Poseidon by Swedish artist Carl Mille was uncovered in 1931. There is an old superstition that states that if you are unmarried and take a photo of the statue, you will remain single. The Gothenburg Art Museum, Concert Hall and City Theater are all located here. From the top of the stairs of the Art Museum, you have a great view of Kungportsavenyn. It is a perfect spot to enjoy a coffee and just marvel at the view. There is a café and restaurant in the Art Museum in case you get hungry.
