90/100 of Stockholm’s subway stations are decorated with art — sculptures, mosaics, paintings, engravings, and reliefs by over 150 artists — much of which dates back to the ’50s.

AT 110km long, it’s said to be the world’s longest art exhibit. Check out this slideshow for a sample of what you can see if you visit.

    Wow, those are definitely some nice pics!

  • The Travel Chica

    I had heard about this, but I never imagined the art was so incredible!

  • Steph

    These are amazing! I’d like to go to Stockholm just for this :)

    I do believe that we “locals” don’t see the art the way we’re supposed too. Most of us have been seeing it since we were kids.

    But the artwork in Stockholm underground it pretty neat. There is always something to look at whichever station you’re at.
    So, if you’re going to Stockholm, don’t miss it out. :)
