T-centralen, Solna centrum, Kungstradgarden, Akalla.. wait a second! Aren’t these the names of some metro stations in Stockholm? Yup! You’re right! And you’ll find some great artwork at all these and many more metro stations in Stockholm! See below for a few samples..
The visitsweden website tells that 90 of the 100 metro stations feature artwork, making the Stockholm metro system an impressive 110 kilometres long art gallery featuring works of hundreds of artists. The best thing about the artwork in the metro stations of Stockholm is the huge variety of styles and types. When I travelled (sort-of randomly0 through the metro stations, I found everything from Greek-roman styled sculptures to caves and forests to piano keys and even a stuffed moose!
I would definitely recommend visiting the Stockholm metro stations, a living breathing museum without any opening or closing hours or crowds of tourists.
Traveller’s tip: If you are in a hurry, I would suggest buying a ticket for blue line and riding till Akalla at the end of the line. While on the way back, check out Solna centrum, then T-Centralen and finally Kungstradgarden. The metro ticket is valid for about an hour after it’s first stamped – so, you should be able to visit all these metro stations with just one ticket!
