Art-on-the-go: Subway in Stockholm

People who live in cities seems to be a lot busier than we thought. We are all busy; we might not even have spare time for unnecessary leisure but to work, work, work only. Stockholm has given us a very creative and lively impression because art is everywhere in the city, even in the busiest places on earth: metro/subway.

It's a really good chance for us to see art even when we are in a hurry, isn't it? There're more than 90 underground stops which had been creatively painted or decorated with artworks and installations. It's a shame that we weren't be able to reach all of them but we've picked 6 of the best stations that you should definitely visit when you are there!

6 Subway Stations You Should Visit in Stockholm City Centre

1. T-centralen Metro Station

This is the biggest terminal in Stockholm therefore you certainly won't miss it out when you interchange, or are going to/from the airport at some points during your trip. The shot above was taken in front of one of the escalators inside the metro station. Make sure you find the right place!

2. Thorildsplan Metro Station

This could be the cutest metro station we've ever seen. It is full of pixelated wall art here. Even though this stop isn't really that close to city centre but it still was one of the busiest station in Stockholm. If you want a nice picture of you without capturing people in the background, you might then need to wait for a bit until it's less crowded.

3. Skarpnack T-bana Metro Station

This stop is the final stop of route 17 and perhaps this is the reason why it was quite empty when we arrived. You could literally just get off the train, take some pictures of these stone seats and get back on the train straight away. You should be able to catch the same train back to the city easily.

4. Tekniska Hogskolan Metro Station

The coolest underground station we've found is right here! There's quite a lot of different sculptures and installation arts in this station and they are all so pretty and cool! You would probably spend more than half an hour here and that could be your longest stay in a single metro station ever.

5. Stadion Metro Station

Who doesn't love rainbow? Everyone would be so excited to see the rainbow wall in person for sure. This station was unexpectedly not busy at all and it's very easy to take nice and decent pictures with such colourful background. It's undoubtedly the most instagrammable metro station in Stockholm!

6. Hogdalen Metro Station

Lastly we've found you an open-air station where they placed a few tulip flower sculptures in the platform. It might not be as impressive as the other stops but you should definitely go see them yourself if you are interested in sculptures as the scale is very funny and interesting.
