Sakura in Sweden-Lavish Cherry-blossom as promised!

Observing natural phenomenon with changing weather is a part of my lifestyle now. I already wrote two posts on spring as winter was really long. In my last post, I talked about beautiful cherry-blossom in Kungsträdgården in Stockholm.

Cherry-blossom is special because they are the only trees adorn with lovely pink and white flowers while all others are still struggling to grow leaves. It gives a festive feeling of bidding good-bye to winter.

We did take chance with friends to visit the place and it was mesmerizing as expected. This was my second visit and I think I will go there again and again. One side of trees were in full bloom while the other side was still in early stages. So obvious that the side in full bloom was overflowing with visitors including us. We all were trying to find the little spot with fewer people for photography. D-SLR and selfie-sticks were everywhere capturing this pink paradise. Little rain showers followed after sometime but it was worth visiting anyway.

Here is a glimpse of how it looked like–

It is only around 2 weeks (depends on the weather again) when we get to see this in best condition. The time can be last weeks of April and first weeks of May. It is the start of spring season in Sweden.

I have also seen wonderful cherry-blossom trees in Västerås and Eskilstuna, standing tall in a row.

Tips:

  1. Take local transport to reach Kungsträdgården in order to avoid parking issues. It is well connected by tram and metro.
  2. A bright sunshine can be followed by rain showers, it is spring time. Be prepared with your water-proofing layers.
  3. 1st May is a public holiday and mostly a great chance to visit this place at right time.

  2. Those cherry blossoms are really striking. There’s an old phrase about how there are no enemies beneath cherry blossom trees. Happy Friday!
