The Stockholm Subway stoRy

27.02.2016

StockholmSubwaystoRy is the project we created at the beginning of the year in order to present you the unique artwork of the Stockholm’s subway system. Read the description of the project and see all the weekly entries so far.

StockholmSubwaystoRy started on the first week of January 2016. The aim of the project is to offer you on every Sunday a short and interesting stoRy of one of Stockholm’s subway stations. Every Sunday we bring you a blog entry explaining the art in the selected station, comments on its name and insights on some of the stations’ facts. All the posts include usually six photos we took within the station, so you can get a better overview. By following #StockholmSubwaystoRy on social media our the category with the same name on our blog, you can see the stations presented so far and read comments about the project.

The Stockholm subway was opened in 1933, with some underground tram stations. The official subway system started in 1950 and continued to expand ever since. Nowadays there are 100 stations, with 46 of them under the ground. 90 stations were decorated by almost 150 artists between 1956 and 2003, making the subway system of Stockholm “the world’s largest art gallery”. The subway in the Swedish capital is organized by SL (Stockholm Public Transport) and the length of the tracks add up to almost 110 km. Around 900.000 people use the metro in a weekday.

To get a better view of our project, here is the complete list of the stations presented so far. Check it every other Sunday to see the new stoRy!
