Stockholm SubwayThis underground can easily compete in beauty with Moscow.Throughout the world there are 165 metrosistem, but a small part of them is a concern.author went to Stockholm to ride the subway and most all to see.
1. In Sweden, there is only one metro, and there about a hundred stations. It seems compact and small, in fact, from the center out to the distant suburbs.2. Do not try to look for the familiar letter "M" - in Stockholm subway is called the word "Tunnelbana", and is denoted by a blue sign with the letter "T".3. In fact, in the announcement post I allowed myself to sarcasm: underground, in fact, the most usual. Beautiful stations there are not many, and most of them are located on the "blue" thread. We'll go there yet.4. Yes, and "Underground" subway this can be called a great pretension: underground stations is less than half, almost all the stations on the edges of land lines.5. But they can be beautiful, if in the case enters the Swedish nature and Swedish as its ability to protect and perfectly fit into the modern life.6. Of course, almost all (if not all) stations are equipped with elevators for the disabled.7. And here is the escalators that go directly to the street. When I wrote about the Prague metro, I have argued that they have a different climate. Here you have a Nordic country Sweden, where too much snow and Dubac. But this is not a barrier, if people want to make themselves comfortable: warm heated pavilion reliable protection mechanism of the escalator that goes out.8. Turnstiles most ordinary, nothing special.9. But as such ticket offices or machines in the subway, I did not notice, that is, machines are found, but not at all stations. Buy a ticket can be in any stall or grocery / newspaper shop not far from the station. Individual tickets are sold, you need to manually punch in the controller (yes, mustachioed men sitting there, just like our grandmother stations), and has a magnetic card, which can be charged. Three days of unlimited travel on tunelbana cost me about a thousand rubles.10. Stations without escalators, I do not come across even a small bedding or ground. While certainly somewhere.11. Cars just like Paris. Swedes made their Canadian Bombardier, Letter of the French manufacturer Alstom. Only in new Parisian compositions can go from the tail to the head through the train, here utilizes dual formulations - two for three cars, "muzzle" engage in the center.12. All trains operated with drivers, but there are right on schedule. Train can wait at the station a few minutes, because idle hours interval of train - only six per hour.13. All new compounds (there are now a majority) have names. Thus, the name is in each car. Sometimes there are funny.14. This underground all three branches, but almost all of them are forked (and the green is divided into three parts) closer to the outskirts. That is, in the same way come by train, going in different directions. So people are not confused over each door write the final station.15. And so begins beauty. This station is dedicated metrostroevtsev.16. The Swedes were not afraid to experiment with the colors of the walls and put on aprons sorts of sculpture and composition. Because without them, all the stations would be the same: Metro cut into the rocks, and the original rock reliefs decided to leave.17. Here you can go down and shit. But no one does. 18
19. Fireplace and stone.20. So many escalators there is a special elevator for the disabled. They did it! And the fact that there is no place and incline not become an excuse for them not to do.21. By the way, was originally built in the Stockholm underground tram, in 1941, the year. Then, after nine years of a change of heart and turned the subway tunnels beneath. A most picturesque, blue metro line was built in the seventies and eighties.22. That is the beauty they create when we had the deaf stagnation and new stations were on the contrary, minimalist and the same. 23
24. Of course, this all stations are equipped with a sufficient number of benches and urns.25. Some truly cool feature. And at the station are different exhibitions. Here, for example, an exhibition of children's drawings.26. I had to leave many things behind the scenes. It just so happened that near the end of a beautiful blue lines begin continuous migrant areas and metro stations crowding them very much. Negros somewhere, somewhere Indians, almost all Arabs. When I took this picture, put the camera on a tripod, with my back in about the same position as these penguins, sat a dozen local residents. They looked at me with angry eyes and spit on the floor. Photograph this wildlife I did not dare.27. Mammoth at the station!28. Here, the "migrant", written in different languages the word "fraternity". And only in the Russian translation for some reason "solidarity."2930. In the old car, which is very similar to ours, in Moscow, I ride and failed: endangered species. I went to one, but the driver announced that "the train is not fit," and I had to get out. Frame interior I do have time.32. Interested in it and its bright red-and-green tones, and rock paintings that tell the story of the life of nature and civilization. Below I will give their interpretation of drawings, it can be different from the official version. Here dad and son wants to go to the mountains, and the guard of the plant is at the barrier and will not allow. Child while in retaliation pissing in front of the guard.32.

IKEA has brought new furniture in red cottage (remember those typical for Sweden houses?). The tail of the truck - in fact technical hatch, for which the whole picture and plotting.34. Here wagon rides along the country road, and in front cleverly sneaks elk.35. In a glass case put a mock village, the architecture is not Swedish.36. And this shot - an absolute classic. It was with him began my acquaintance with the Swedish underground online. Incidentally, the post that has grown throughout the network, in fact belongs to Sasha adrag239, who lived for four years in Stockholm and often photographed subway.Add to friends and read the source material :)37. Lisonke ill from its plants in the forest. So long sad, sit on a chair and turn into a scarecrow.38. Grandfather-partisan laid mines to train. His neighbor shouted the engineer, so he slowed down, the dog is barking. But the locomotive crew does not notice them - they listen to Abba.39. Another showcase. It put the White House in Washington, DC, and before him, for some reason, the Russian hut.40. The Swedes could not show elk. Some Swedes raised elk, others tried to carry it with you and broke the windows.
