Stockholm, Sweden: King's Garden

Welcome to the oldest park in Stockholm, which is saying. King's Garden dates back to the 1400s, where it served as the royal vegetable garden. Then it became a private garden, and was opened to the public in the 1770s.

King Charles XII is the guy in the middle of the picture in statue form. He is shown pointing toward Russia, as that country and Sweden had some memorable battles. He and Peter the Great got to know each other well that way.
