A Photo Tour Stockholm’s ‘World’s Longest Art Exhibition’ Metro Station Art

A Photo Tour Stockholm’s ‘World’s Longest Art Exhibition’ Metro Station Art

Dubbed the “world’s longest art exhibition”, the Stockholm metro system is a futuristic subterranean wonderland of awe-inspiring design.

The first line opened back in 1950, and today the metro has 100 stations in use. The whole metro system is 105.7 kilometres (65.7 miles) long and is comprised of three different lines color networks.

The first piece of underground art was introduced in 1957. Today, around 90 stations out of 100 showcase works of art of almost 150 artists. For the price of a Stockholm Metro ticket, you can see sculptures, mosaics, paintings, art installations and murals in over 90 of the metro stations.

Ryan is an avid bucket lister. Travel, photography, blogging and adventure are some of his hobbies. He once went on a trip to Spain and was robbed of all his stuff except his clothes. No money, no insurance, no identification and no way to contact family and friends from back home. Did he end his trip? No way! He ended up running with the bulls in Pamplona the very next day.
  • Cool pictures, especially the one that looks like hell. I would get a bit scared in that metro station I think, but photographing it would really be something.

    Simply amazing, and such creativity. I’ve never seen anything like this before!
