Metro is one of the main cards of Stockholm.
Under the Swedish capital is an intricate network of underground lines for trains.
Their length is 110 km and the unofficial name is “the longest art gallery in the world.”
The Stockholm metro was opened on 1 October 1950. Over stations worked 150 artists. In total there are 3 metro lines – blue, red and green. 47 underground stations and 53 ground or overground stations.
The station Solna Centrum on the blue line. The movement on the lines of the left hand side, as when the opening of the metro in Sweden had left-hand traffic.
Kungsträdgården (Swedish. Royal garden) is a Park in Central Stockholm. And the name of the station on the green line.
But the main thing is the design. Each line has its own style. Here and fairy grottoes, and Greek sculpture, and the corners of classical architecture, and wall reliefs, mosaics, and even video installations, pop art (one of the stations to the ceiling nailed huge shoes), fountains and streams.
In the subway often hosts exhibitions. Their work Stockholm metro provides several hundred artists. Previously, the state annually invested in the underground gallery about $1.5 million.
