StockholmSubwaystoRy #93 – Islandstorget
Stockholm Subway with stoRy touRs
18th of March comes with a third story this month directly from the Stockholm subway. This time, we are taking you to…Iceland?
Islandstorget, or Iceland square in English, is today’s fresh entry in the Stockholm Subway StoRy with StoRy TouRs. The station is located in a western residential area called Södra Ängby.
Officially, it was opened on the 26th of October 1952. But before that, it was a tram station for line 11 since 1st of October 1944. Nowadays, it’s on the green T19 line in the subway network.
Situated at a bit more than 13 km away from the central station of Slussen, Islandstorget is preceded eastbound by Ängbyplan, while westbound comes Blackeberg.
This station has only one entrance, from Blackebergsvägen. Otherwise, as you get in, you’ll discover an open-air station, with a large platform and two set of tracks alongside it. On a regular working day, about 4.000 people are using Islandstorget subway station.
