The Stockholm subway system is said to be the world’s longest art exhibit – 110 kilometers long.
Traveling by subway is like traveling through an exciting story that extends from the artistic pioneers of the 1950s to the art experiments of today. Over 90 of the 100 subway stations in Stockholm have been decorated with sculptures, mosaics, paintings, installations, engravings and reliefs by over 150 artists.
The Stockholm subway is really popular among photographers and instagrammers. Here are some photos from our @visitstockholm Instagram account:

There are guided art tours in the subway every day, free of charge as long as you have a valid transportation ticket. You can also go on your own explorations of the subway system, and we have selected the stations that we think are worth an extra trip.
