What's the difference between "torvet" and "pladsen"? They both mean "square"
I didn't find a direct answer to this question but here are some synonyms for both Plads = place, position, seat, square, location, spot, plaza, public square, place to sit Turv = square, marketplace (outdoor, open space), fair, bazaar Apparently "pladsen" means more than just the square, it's a generic term And turv refers to an openspaced area in the city where you can have a market or a fair
På does translate to on, but you wouldn't use on as the preposition in English in this case though.
As LunaticTramp asks: what's the difference between 'torvet' and 'pladsen' please?
