While I definitely caught the tail-end of the cherry blossoms in Kungsträdgården (“The King’s Garden”) also known as “Kungsan” to locals, they were no less beautiful. Pleasant spring weather which has been teasing residents for weeks seems like it’s finally here to stay. The blossoms usually peak between the end of April and early May. Under the cherry blossom trees, people soak up sun, eat ice-cream, gossip, and play chess.
