Stockholm's vast and ubiquitous parks are inseparable from the city. The most famous is probably Hagaparken, a huge green area with forests and lakes that invites you to spend an afternoon here in sunny weather.

Hagaparken covers an area of 144 hectares in the suburb of Solna, north of Stockholm.

It attracts visitors with pretty gazebos and pavilions and a gently rolling landscape full of mown meadows ideal for picnics, dense forests and beautiful walking trails along the water.

If you have a few hours to spare in Stockholm when the weather is nice, make sure you head to Hagaparken for a break from the hustle and bustle of the city.
