Stockholm

Stockholm

Stockholm's subway is referred to as the world's longest art gallery because works of art have been integrated in almost every station since the 1950s. SL spends 10 million SEK per year in safeguarding and developing artwork.

Many stations in Stockholm have been left as rock caverns, especially on the Blue Line, which gives them an outstanding, unique atmosphere. Works of art can be found in 90 of the 100 stations. 140 artists have contributed so far.
