StockholmSubwaystoRy #58 – Midsommarkransen

Stockholm Subway with stoRy touRs

Last week we wrote about the future yellow line which will be constructed in the following years in the Swedish capital. Now, we get back to presenting you a new station which already exists! Today, we talk about Midsommarkransen.

Midsommarkransen gets its name from the district in which is placed. Translated in English, it would be The Midsummer Wreath. The station itself is an underground one and it was opened in April 1964. Currently, it severs the red T14 line in the subway network.

The cave is placed at 17 meters below ground. It has two platforms divided by a wall and at one end has only one ticket hall, with two separate entrances. The nearby stations are Telefonplan towards south and Liljeholmen towards northern end. On a regular working day almost 5.500 people pass by this station.

Part of the artwork here was procured by the local students of the School of Arts, Crafts and Design. In this case, it is represented by a wonderful wooden garland, which was inaugurated in the summer of 1979. The contributing students were: Anna Flemström, Stina Zetterman and Hans Nilsson. Also, the art here was completed later on, in 1990, by the work of Lisbeth Lindholm and Dag Wallin, who designed the murals along the tracks.

Why should you visit this station? To discover symbols of one of the most important Swedish traditions, the Midsummer. Walking through the station you will get the feeling of traveling through a dream, a magical place, which through Midsummer’s symbols, will let you feel the nature and liberty o a summer day blending with the busy daily life.
