8. CHERRY BLOSSOMS


Kungstradgarden is a large park in the centre of Stockholm, which is home to hundreds of blossom trees. If you head there around April to June time, you will see them in full bloom. When I visited Stockholm, I visited Kungstradgarden when the trees weren’t in bloom and they still looked beautiful.
