Take an interactive tour of Stockholm's metro with its colourful and art-filled stations

Stockholm’s metro is well-known for its incredible art and is considered one of the most beautiful in the world, convincing travellers to take a break from the city’s many attractions and head underground. 

Now you don’t need to head to Stockholm to get an idea of just how amazing the stations are, as everyone can take a tour through some of the most incredible ones with an interactive tour from Expedia. The online tour provides information about how some stations take on serious issues through the often brightly-coloured artworks. In stations like Solna Centrum, the walls are covered with art focused on issues that were important to 1970s Sweden, like deforestation and rural depopulation. Tensta focused on themes of solidarity, with the word brotherhood painted in 18 languages, and much more.
