Full description
Immerse yourself in Stockholm's vibrant underground art scene on this tour. Meet your friendly guide at Kungsträdgården station then set off on your journey of exploration. Travel along the blue and red lines to discover the artistic wonders of each station, with artwork dating back to 1957. Throughout the tour, listen to your guide’s fascinating insight into public art in Sweden, learn why there is art in the subway, and how the art was chosen. At the first station, gain an overview of Stockholm's subway art and admire the station's unique cave-style walls that were installed in the 1970s. At each stop, uncover the stories of the artists who worked alongside architects to create the fascinating cave stations you see today. Each piece has been designed to create complete environments rather than individual artworks. By the end of the tour, you’ll have a deeper appreciation for Stockholm’s fascinating subway system and the city’s passion for art.

Only seen a few stations, little explanation of what could be seen; no background info. Great to do on your own.
