Beautiful sunset over City Hall, Riddarholmen, Gamla Stan Stockholm (Sweden)
Riddarholmen (Swedish: “The Knights’ Islet”) is a small islet in central Stockholm. The island forms part of Gamla Stan, the old town, and houses a number of private palaces dating from the 17th century. The main landmark is the church Riddarholmskyrkan, the royal burial church since the 17th century and where a number of Swedish monarchs lie buried.
Stockholm subway T-Centralen station. The architecture itself is equally striking. The T-Centralen station resembles a blue and white cavern, with walls of sprayed concrete made to imitate rock face rather than covering up the shape of the tunnel. Station designed by Per Olof Ultvedt in 1975.
Traveling on a city’s subway system is never expected to be an exciting experience. But this could not be farther from the truth in the Swedish capital Stockholm, where artists have transformed the city’s subway into a gigantic kaleidoscopic art exhibition. Stadion station – this one is cave-like and has vivid blue color with rainbow paint.
“Last train from Inferno” – Stockholm has one of the most beautiful metro system in the world. Several stations were decorated by artists and this one is cave-like and has vivid colours. Solna Centrum – the most fascinating metro station. 🙂
So I decided once again to make something new… Here is the first photo of my “subway collection”:
Stockholm subway – Solna centrum station stands out for its cavernous, bright red ceiling that seems to “weigh down” on the platform. So I was there late night and deep in the bowels of Stockholm (tunnelbana) subway system… setting up to take this shot of the station 🙂
