 Summary:
 Civic squares are the oldest developed public spaces in cities. Spontaneously grouped houses around the place where the main roads were crossed in settlements formed empty and unbuilt areas recognized as squares. The main functions of these squares throughout the history of all civilizations were places for gathering, trading and socialization for all citizens. The typology of squares can be defined by studying the function of free public spaces and the function of the ground floor of surrounding facilities. The Galleries Square in Novi Sad is unique in its content of surrounding ground floor facilities from which it took its name. This paper examines two sides (the obverse and reverse) of this public space with three galleries and other public facilities that form the physical structure and the functions of the free space of the square. The aim is to explore the impact and correlated functions of the ground floor of buildings with the available space of the square which create a certain experience and particular identity.
