Platform of T-Centralen station, Stockholm.
"Stockholm's subway is known as the world's longest art gallery because works of art have been integrated in almost every station since the 1950s [tunnelbana.com]. SL spends 10 million SEK per year in safeguarding and developing artworks. 140 artists have contributed so far. "

Updated: mOBSCENE, the old codger, brings us a nice link to the Pyongyang metro (One of the remarkable features of the Pyongyang Metro is the martial music played in the system. This consists of North Korean anthems and patriotic songs, although the speaker system is also used for, shall we say, public service announcements, reportedly including messages exhorting people to be on the lookout for traitors and spies.
Much of the time, though, travelers hear music such as the selections presented
here. ...)
And here are some rather nice pics.
