It was in this time I discovered Haga Park. This was Stockholm answer to London's HYDE PARK or New York City CENTRAL PARK.
I walked through Haga Park on the first Saturday of December 2016. The snow crunched my boots as it kept falling. I have spent the past 3 weeks walking on snow for the first time. I was amazed to see the Chinese Pavilion, the Turkish Pavillion and even walk around the gates of Haga Palace (where Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden Lives)
As a fan of burial grounds, I was quiet sad to see that Kungliga begravningsplatsen was only open during the summer months. I was falling in love with Sweden after 3 days. I told myself that I would have to come back here in the summer so I could enter the famous Kungliga begravningsplatsen (Royal Cemetery)
Fast forward 18 months, I am now living in the south of Stockholm, the sun is out and doesn't ever really go down. To be in Stockholm over summer make a huge diffidence.
To get inside Kungliga begravningsplatsen you must remember a few things
1) Its is only open to the public in the Summer months (May-August)
2) It is only open once a week on Thursdays between the hours of 13:00 to 15:00.
I left home around Midday to rush up north to Stockholm Central. A bus took me out to the side entrance of Haga Park. I made my way inside the park. After 30 minutes of walking around the gates of Haga Palace. I got directions to Kungliga begravningsplatsen
