Subway Art - Stockholm

The Stockholm subway system is said to be the world's longest art exhibit - 110 kilometres long. Travelling by subway is like travelling through an exciting story that extends from the artistic pioneers of the 1950s to the art experiments of today. Over 90 of the 100 subway stations in Stockholm have been decorated with sculptures, mosaics, paintings, installations, engravings, and reliefs by over 150 artists. 

The Kungsträdgården subway station looks like an archaeological excavation, with the remains of the old Stockholm Makalös palace. At Östermalmstorg the artist Siri Derkert highlights women's rights and peace and environmental issues.

This is a picture of me at Mörby Centrum on the red line, decorated by artists Gösta Wessel and Karin Ek. I found this station particularly interesting as you can only see how beautiful the colours are from a certain angle. I actually passed this wall many times and never noticed how truly beautiful it can be. If you have an SL card, you can make a full day of visiting each station at a minimal price, I would really recommend it. 

Do you have a favourite Station?

All the best, Leia

I had no idea there were things from the old palace Makalösa in Kungsträdgården station. As a kid, my favorite station was Stadion (Stadium) because of the colors. It is mostly light blue and there is an arc with a colorfully painted rainbow.


Best regards, Niklas 🎈

#1 Stadion is one of my favourites as well! My absolute favourite would have to be the 8 bit artwork in Thorildsplan 🙂

Since I am raised in Stockholm the subwaystations where I grew up will always be special too me. But otherwise I really like Kungsträdgården, Solna C (Paintings of swedish landscape) and Stadion (rainbow!),

#6 I really like Kungsträdgården as well, I love that if you look closely you can see faces in the wall.

All the best, Leia
