Delightful Park
Sep 2019 • Couples
Great place to relax in the middle of Stockholm’s center of culture near the opera house. Lots of cafes and kiosks line the paths to feed your hunger and thirst while enjoying the park.

WORTH A LOOK IF IN THE KUNGSTRADGARDEN
Jul 2019 • Solo
Karl XII ruled at the start of the 18th century. The statue was erected in 1868, the 150th anniversary of his death. The statue is at the southerly edge of the Kungstradgarden, itself a nice green space.

Another statue

One of many statues around Kungstradgarden. Good place for a walk in the shade on a sunny day. Not sure who Karl XII was but supposedly some Swedish King.

The garden is nice
Jul 2018 • Friends
This statue of Karl 12 by itself is nothing special nor something which you can not ignore, but it stays in the Kingstradgarden which by itself is a cute small garden with many people and food stands around.

Just another statue
Jun 2017 • Couples
At the center of Karl XII's Torg - Charles XII Square stands this statue of king Charles XII the war king, which was created in 1868 by the Swedish sculptor Johan Peter Molin. He is thought to be pointing towards Russia, where he led his army in several battles against the troops of Peter the Great, one of his most important adversaries.

A monument to a warmongering king
Mar 2017 • Couples
During our free walking we visited many sites/sights. Seeing many attractions similar to this statue without having a guide we would have no idea of what it all means. The story goes this particular king was a warmonger, so much so he spent far to much money on his quests. The statue depicts him pointing to Russia, his mortal enemy. The four pots signify cowards. As the aristocracy would not finance his wars, they were the pots.
So he was known has a lion amongst cowards. we highly recommend having a guide when walking around the city, or read lots of books.
