We have previously described the Stockholm metro system as the world’s longest art exhibition. Today we present the art in a visual form – an image story.
“The world’s longest art exhibition” is 110 km long. Out of 100 stations, 94 are emblazoned with paintings, mosaics and installations. For the price of a subway ticket tourists can take a free hour-long tour of four to five stations from June to August.
SL, Stockholm Public Transport, may arrange a complimentary tour by request.
SL has supported subway art by 150 artists since the 1950s. You should add an extra day to your Stockholm visit just to travel the metro.
As you can see, art goes underground in Stockholm. Doors are closing. Have a nice trip and enjoy a selection of the art pieces.
