Exploring the artsy Stockholm Underground

One more thing that I enjoy about Stockholm is the public transport. Some metro stations have amusing designs! Plus, the services are reliable and it’s easy to get around Stockholm. I present to you three artsy metro stations. And, so that you know, you could make a whole tour of underground art of Stockholm!

 

Kungsträdgården T-bana station (tunnelbana is the Swedish name for metro) features relics from the buildings that were pulled down during the redevelopment of central Stockholm in 1950s and 1960s.

 

T-Centralen (Blue line) station has amazing mural drawings by Per Olof Ultvedt.

 

Thorildsplan T-bana station. Which video games do you recognize??

 

Feel free to leave a comment with your favorite station!

I hope you enjoyed the photos by Anna Vidina!
