Subway Hallonbergen: Children’s playground!

Normally a Subway station isn’t a place where children can play. But in Sweden they think different. The subway tunnels in Sweden are decorated and are the longest art galleries in the world. So every station has his own identity. 

Hallonbergen (meaning “Raspberry Hills”) is a suburb of Stockholm, Sweden. Hallonbergen, which has about 4,750 inhabitants, located in Sundbyberg Municipality in the north-west of Stockholm, is a fairly typical 1960-1970s area of dense Million Programme housing in the style of multi-level concrete apartment buildings. Hallonbergen has a large population of immigrants; 41% of the population are born in foreign countries. Many of them come from Lebanon, Syria and Eritrea. But there are also many eastern European immigrants. And all those immigrants have children how are very creative. they live peaceful together in this suburb. And this peaceful feeling has turned in a creative art gallery at the Hallonbergen’s subway station. White walls with colourful drawings from children. There’s a hopscotch in the middle of the station and the walls are full of animals, faces of the children and activities they do. Watch it yourself when you’re in Stockholm. It’s amazing (creative)!
