Stockholm Metro-longest art gallery in the world
Often called the longest art gallery in the world, Stockholm metro is worth visiting. About 90 of the 100 metro stations provide for visitors the opportunity to get acquainted with the work of representatives of the various types and areas of art. Here are fabulous grottoes (many stations are cut in the rocks as in the cave), sculpture, corners of classical architecture, wall reliefs, mosaics, graffiti and even a video installation. Noteworthy, the subway often hosts exhibitions, provided by several hundred artists. Formerly, the state invested annually in the underground gallery about $ 1.5 million.

Total Stockholm tunnelbana consists of three lines: Blue (Bla Linjen), Red (Roda linjen) and Green (Grona linjen). All three lines converge at T-centralen, where there are central railway station (Central Station) and the central bus station (CityTerminalen). This place is also called the Stockholm C. From here you can go anywhere in Stockholm, Sweden, Scandinavia, as well as any airport (by train, by bus) and from there around the world.

To get lost in the Stockholm metro is simply impossible. It is quite easy to understand signs, pointers. In addition, you need to clearly remember that lines tend to be divided into several areas. The names of the stations announce a pleasant female voice. In addition, the Swedish underground is totally noiseless. Traveling in the train, you can safely talk. Time remaining until the arrival of the train, is displayed on the scoreboard.

The station Solna centrum

The Solna centrum station

The station Solna centrum is one of the most colorful and contrasting stations. Painted in bright red and green colors. The theme of the station – how people cut down the forests and build in its place their lives. On the one side of the station painted a lot of wood, in the middle of it houses are being built, and at the other end – already live and work.

Stockholm tunnelbana escalator

Tunnelbana escalator

There is one feature about escalators. Let’s say you come to some distant station and want to rise to the top. You go up the escalator, and it does not work. And nobody is around. In this case, you just need to go to the escalator and it will turn on itself. In addition to escalators there are elevators (lifts), that duplicate escalators, they are actively used by people with pushchairs. Sometimes elevator goes directly to the surface. It looks unusual – in the middle of walkway stands a glass booth, a man enters it and it goes down.
