Visit Stockholm: The Swedish Capital´s Colourful Metro Stations

Stockholm in the winter is well and truly a cold, dull and dark place.

Scratch beneath the surface and you will find a whole new world, however — one of colour, caves and vast artworks, each with their own story and heritage.

Since the late fifties, Stockholm´s metro stations have been decorated by the works of numerous artists, who have created epic underground wonderlands that are both functional as well as fun.

I didn´t visit all of Stockholm´s elaborate metro stations (saving some for another rainy day) but those that I did have the pleasure of seeing truly beguilded me.

My imagination wandered ‘neath the bedrock and beyond it´s confines — I saw Darth Vader, Zion´s hall from The Matrix and so much more.
