Stockholm’s Subways Are Covered With Amazing Art And Installations

At least in the United States, subways are often thought of as utilitarian spaces quickly passed through during rush hour.  Sweden’s Stockholm Metro, however, is filled with bright colors, mosaics, bas relief, even, installations and sculpture created over the past 60 years.  Often considered one of the continent’s most beautiful metro systems, the city takes the underground art very seriously.  For the price of a ticket, the system offers guided tours with a Metro expert.  Further, the Stockholm Metro hosts temporary art exhibits in addition to its six decades worth of permanent art.  Next time your in Sweden be sure to schedule some time underground.
