T-Centralen. Swedish for "The T-Central", T being an abbreviation for "tunnelbana": underground, subway. T-Centralen is the heart of the Stockholm metro system, the only station where all three lines meet. The second station of T-Centralen is part of the Blue line we are exploring and was opened in 1975. Pictures show the easily recognizable blue color that dominates the station. There are painted blue vines, flowers and silhouettes of workers on the blue and white background on the ceiling. Artist: Per Olof Ultvedt.#travel #Stockholm #undergroundart #underground

Rådhuset underground station is named after Rådhuset (The Court House) right above it, and was opened in 1975. Like some other stations on the Stockholm metro, it features organic architecture, leaving the bedrock exposed, as if based on natural cave systems. Behold a grotto the colour of sandstone, with imaginative “ architectural finds” from different periods in Kungsholmen’s history.

Solna centrum station is about 5 kilometres away from central Stockholm. It's close to R åsunda Stadium and was opened in 1975. Solna centrum is one of my favorites because of the striking cadmium red color that dominates it. You can explore red and green grottos with painted motifs from Sweden in the 70’ s; countryside, environmental pollution, the Hagalund district, among others. Artists: Karl-Olov Bjö rk and Anders Å berg.. #travel #Stockholm #undergroundart #underground

All in all, some 150 artists have contributed to the Stockholm's Metro ’s permanent exhibition. Näckrosen station was opened in 1975 and is located deep underground."N äckrosen" means "the water lily," and that's one theme of the artwork, as seen below. The station's south entrance also serves Gamla Filmstaden, Sweden's original "Hollywood" - an area of studios where lots of early Swedish films were made.
