In February, my sister Heather and I took a trip to Sweden to visit Stockholm. A beautiful city full of canals, boats, and art. While most museums and galleries have a fee to enter, there is also so much public art on display. We bought a subway ticket each and went exploring through all of the station art. About 2 hours worth of culture and amusement for approximatly £2.00.
A bit of a boring station at first glance, with white painted cave walls. However, venture up the back of this station and you are met with a rainbow tiles wall that looks like it’s breaking through clouds.
With brown / orange rock wall walls and large pillars, the Rådhuset line feels like you are in some ancient cave of wonders.
A wonderful landscape painting spanning the entire length of the station. With green forest trees and a bright red sky it’s a great view.
T-Centralen station is the main city centre subway station that most lines will run through. Follow the signs for the blue line and you will end up in one of most beautiful stations we have ever seen. With blue leaves and flowers all over the walls and ceiling it is a wonderful surprise to walk into.
Looking like a cross between a Mariokart racetrack, and a science centre. With black and white checkered floors, grass green walls, racing flags, anatomy roof paintings, and a built-in fireplace, we are really not too sure what to make of this station.
Stadion is one of Stockholms first “cave stations”, built in 1973. Painted in sky blue with a fantastic rainbow in the centre of the platform. There is also a beautifully painted floral bench at the station entrance.
A fantastic rainbow escalator joining subway line’s together within the underground station. There are so many pretty details hiding throughout all of the stations.
The walls in Hötorget station are covered in square pastel mint bathroom tiles, and bright neon-lights swirl around the ceiling creating a very 50’s vibe.
