Cherry Trees (Kungsträdgården) - STOCKHOLM

Sweden's most famous cherry trees are found right in the heart of Stockholm, in the grand park known as Kungsträdgården. The blossoms usually last for a couple of weeks, depending on the weather. 

The cherry trees were a gift from Japan to the Swedish King Carl XVI Gustaf in 1998, and planted in the King’s garden (Kungsträdgården in Swedish). An annual Japanese festival also takes place at Kungsträdgården in mid-April, with craft stands and snack stalls setting up just beneath the trees, organised by the Japanese Association in Stockholm.
