Mentioned the must-see checkpoints in Stockholm, people who have been to will tell you, don't miss the Stockholm subway! What? Didn't you miss it? You really didn't get it wrong. The Stockholm Metro is the most beautiful metro in the world. In the world's longest art gallery, visitors can enjoy more than 150 artists' creative works in more than 90 subway stations.

                                                                Stockholm Metro

The capital of Sweden and the metro of Stockholm, the largest city, have always been talked about. The subway system is mainly composed of three lines of red, green and blue. There are a total of 100 stations, including 47 underground stations and 53 underground stations. The 110-kilometer subway network is the longest subway network in the world. Since the Swedes used the blasting hole in the initial construction of the subway, the characteristics of the rock cave were preserved, so each site looked like an underground cave.


Designers use the irregular surface of the rock and combine the historical and cultural features of the different stations to paint and decorate them. Therefore, each station can be said to be a work of art. With just one subway ticket, visitors can enjoy sculptures, murals, oil paintings, decorative arts and reliefs from the 1950s to the 21st century. Once inside this mysterious underground space, visitors are like being in a fantasy world.

As the station is occupied by a variety of unique sculptures, artworks and exhibitions, Stockholm has become the world's longest art gallery and attracts visitors from all over the world. Many people who come to the area are willing to spend half a day to one day walking through the underground world of Stockholm.

Currently, as many as 270 million passengers enter the Stockholm metro system every year, that is, more than 500,000 people visit or use the subway every day.


In order to enjoy the fascinating artistic experience of the Stockholm Metro, passengers need to rely on the elevators and escalators in the subway to visit the scenery along the way, or to achieve efficient access through these mobile devices.


The Stockholm Metro runs normally from 5:00 am to midnight at 0:00 and on weekends. And with the number of passengers in the Stockholm metro not rising, no matter which manufacturer the elevators in the subway come from, each elevator and escalator must be able to continue running without downtime, which means:


Elevator and escalator maintenance programs need to meet the highest quality standards.
