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.
