Art in the Subway

The Stockholm subway system is said to be the world's longest art exhibit - 110 kilometres long. Travelling by subway is like travelling through an exciting story that extends from the artistic pioneers of the 1950s to the art experiments of today.

One of the most spectacular stations is Kungsträdgården, located right in the city centre. The artist Ulrik Samuelson has transformed the station into an underground garden, depicting the history of Kungsträdgården (The King’s garden). Here you will find cast sculptures once on display at Makalös Palace, formerly on the same site, an elm tree trunk clad in stone and a waterfall in the rock. At one of the exits, there is a kind of archaeological dig – a Forum Romanum for Stockholm – with ancient columns and fragments from torn-down buildings in Stockholm.
