Admiring the Cherry Blossom in Stockholm

Thetraveljunkie.org – This is probably one of the reasons why we decided to head to Sweden when we did; to enjoy one of nature’s greatest spectacles: the hanami at Kungsträdgården (“The King’s Garden”), which is one of the city’s most popular parks, is also home to the city’s biggest display of soft pink cherry blossoms.

Literally speaking, hanami means looking at flowers and this is what this Japanese tradition is all about: admiring the cherry blossom.

The whole city is beautiful to look at, but the Kungsträdgården is on a whole different level. The whole city is transformed and dressed in pink and white, and the contrast with its natural colours, is breathtaking.

Let us grateful to people who make us happy: They are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
