Everyone knows about the beauty of the Moscow metro. And you would believe if they knew that there is a subway in the world is no less beautiful? It is located in Stockholm. Tunnelbana – they call it the local people. Although, perhaps, the comparison with the Moscow Metro is not quite correct, since these two monumental underground structures in architecture are completely different concepts. The Moscow Metro is allocated wealth and pomp of Soviet-style, with its marble granite and huge chandeliers. Swedish metro is created under the idea of approximation to nature.
Most underground stations built 'explosive' method. That is, the builders just blew hard rock, which is most of the soils beneath the city, applied to the walls of the minimal processing required for their stability, and then was invited by famous artists, so they do not stint on the fantasy and was applied to the surface of your natural fancy 'the rock' drawings. The result was what many now call "the longest art gallery in the world." Now the system includes the metro in Stockholm exactly 100 active stations, half of which underground, and one unfinished 'ghost station', which the locals are legendary. Is owned by SL. Subway service contract is on a competitive basis and are currently signed with Veolia Transport.
