  T-Centralen station

The 'blue line' on the underground
Because Swedish geology means bedrock, the underground is no exception. The blue underground line is deeper down than the rest and this means that it is not only physically cooler but gorgeous. The rock has been left all curvy since the blasting to create the underground track and this means you walk in rocky halls to get to the platforms. They are also painted in different colours and some have further decorations. Public transport meets art! There is a booklet about it which is for free in the ticket booths. Sorry for the dark pic - I'll work on it once I get to know the digital better.

Directions: Try getting down at the Central station (pic) and go to for instance Solna centrum where the station has a 'north Swedish style' - bedrock painted red and with pictures of elks and people moving south to get jobs.
