Not my favorite part of Old Town but surely a good one to visit as it is quite big and is aligned with interesting buildings and cafes. Do not miss the Cat house and the guilds.

A beautiful busy square. it's surrounded by great buildings, and the center has many shops and open air restaurants. Very nice. And a black cat statue.

It's the main square - where all the action is and all the people are. Really nice atmosphere for the old town, just didn't spend much time there because all the restaurants and bars tended to be for tourists and expensive.

Lots of cafés and shops all open on Sundays with tiny streets leading off and well worth visiting as well as the main concert hall. Good value for food but a bit more expensive for drinks

During my visit Livu Square was quite empty and boring maybe of misrable day. No musicians, no vendors.

There are quite a few interesting buildings around this square, and there is a souvenir market on it.

Great place for souvenir shopping or coffee/lunch break during the daytime or a live music concert at night.
