Victoria Square is the most famous commercial square in Christchurch. In the center of the square stands Victoria Bell Tower. On both sides are large shopping malls and some sculptures reflecting the natural resources of New Zealand. However, it seems that the layout is somewhat messy. Compared with Cathedral Square, it has two distinct styles.
Christchurch's Victoria Square, the center of the city, was badly damaged by the earthquake, but it was quickly restored and now it is full of vitality. It is surrounded by many famous buildings, such as city churches and museums, commerce is particularly developed, is the absolute city center.
It was renamed Victoria Square because of the statue of Queen Victoria. Of course, besides Victoria, there is a statue of Captain Cook, the discoverer of New Zealand. The square in the centre of Christchurch is covered with green trees, with no trace of the earthquake.
The Victoria Square beside the city hall has a quiet beauty, like a large garden, marked by fountains, flower clocks and the statue of Queen Victoria. The earthquake destroyed parts of the area, and some artistic and cultural performances added some vitality.
This is the centre of Adelaide. In the center is a green square. The statue of the Queen stands here. Many buses pass by. In the early winter morning, there are still many people playing here. Go straight north, through the city hall to Adelaide Railway Station, then north, through the Torrens River is North Adelaide, which is mainly residential.
This square, like a big garden, is very beautiful, even if I went within a month after the earthquake in Christchurch, I still feel!
The whole square has a large space and a long history. The churches and courts can hardly see that it was once the golden zone of the prosperity of Christchurch.
Because it's a very wide square and the weather is good, many people fly kites, roller skating and so on. It's a perfect place for summer square dancing. Unfortunately, no one here dances square dancing.
There will be many birds in the square, but still a lot of places are clean; occasionally there will be children on skateboards playing, occasionally there will be activities, you can also sit in the square to buy snacks or something, sunshine.
