Strange Maps

125 - Big Bog, Rock Star, Spoon Farm and Other Stops On the Stockholm Metro

stockholmmetro.jpg

This is a map of the Stockholm Metro, with the original Swedish names of all the stops translated into English. Literal translations often make for funny reading, and this map is no exception. My favourites are:

Awful Village Hospital
Exhale
A Spoon Farm
Big Bog
Clog Mountain, and of course:
Rock Star

This map was sent to me by somebody from Denmark (my mail address is in the right hand side column, suggestions are very welcome). As is well known, Danes will grasp every opportunity to ridicule their Swedish neighbours…
