An App to Guide Your Visit to the Art on the Stockholm Subway

The Stockholm subway, a unique place full of art, is well known throughout the world. A total of 94 stations of the 100 available contain some artistic elements or are completely decorated. Guided tours of the subway are arranged during the year but at fairly limited times.

In 2019 during the summer months more than 2000 people from 54 countries have been able to take one of the tours. Many more than the previous year. So the company in charge of public transport system in Stockholm has decided to create a new app that allows visitors to discover the art of subway stations on their own.
