Can "fin" also be translated as "lovely"?

"trädgård" sounds like "trägård" with no pronunciation of the "d". Correct?

Could someone please pass by me when to use "fin" vs "vackert"? Thanks.

They are pretty much interchangeable. I’d say ”fin” is closer to ”nice (looking)” and ”vacker” is closer to ”beautiful”.

Expanding on that, vacker (like beautiful) is usually about aesthetic appeal, while "fin" can be about high quality, a good person, something small and delicate, someone distinguished, etc. "Fin" could be translated to a number of different words including "nice", "fine", "excellent", "good", "delicate" etc. depending on context. Check here for a ton of examples (if the link doesn't work properly, just type fin in the search box there).

Isn't Trädgården also a bar in Sweden? Like from the song "Trädgården i fredag"

There is a bar/club Called "Trädgården" in Gothenburg, where Håkan Hellström - who sings that song - is from. But the word itself does not have that meaning.
