Centralbadsparken in the middle of central Stockholm is a small oasis with lush trees, a pond with fishes, and some ducks. It is very hidden from the busy shopping street Drottninggatan (Queens Street). If you are looking for a more tranquil place to relax, maybe eat or drink something this is a cozy place to visit, at least during the Swedish summer months.

I often come here in early spring when the trees start to get new leaves and release a nice smell. I normally visit the patio at Umbertos restaurant as they get a lot of sun when we Swedes need it the most. The owner is such a nice man and takes good care of his patrons. Coming here also might give you a chance to spot some famous people, mostly politicians, so you better study the current government. Umbertos serves cold and hot drinks and has a menu with both classic Swedish dishes and some pastas at a good price.

When the summer heat kicks in, the patio will be full fast, so get here early. I prefer late afternoon, maybe at 4-5 PM when the sun is not as hot. Remember that during the summer months, June-July, the sun rarely sets. It might get a bit darker around 11 PM. So enjoy a break from your shopping and sightseeing at this small park.
