StockholmSubwaystoRy #105 – Tallkrogen
Stockholm Subway with stoRy touRs
Hello everyone and welcome to our first August entry in the Stockholm Subway StoRy! Today we went out and took pictures in the southern part of the Swedish capital. Here are our impressions of Tallkrogen.
Today’s station is located in the district with the same name in Stockholm. It was opened in October 1950 and nowadays it serves the T18 green line in the subway system.
Northbound, the closest station is Skogskyrkogården, which we presented to you in July, while southbound you will find Gubbängen, one station that will come soon in our saga.
Slussen is easily reachable from here, being at only six kilometers away. However, Tallkrogen is not one of the busiest subway stations in the city, with less than 2.000 people passing by here on a regular working day.
Peter Celsing was the architect who designed the open-air station. Here there is only one entrance, which is leading the traveler to the only platform connected to two tracks, one for each way.
Also here you can find the Tallkrog dragon just above the entrance. This is a fictional character created by Kristina Anshelm and which with its form inspired the urban planning nearby.
