Skarpnäck (Tub1, line 17)

Opened on 15 August 1994.

Skarpnäck is the newest station in the tunnelbana, along with the new station at Bagarmossen opened on the same day in 1994, but the new Bagarmossen station replaced an earlier surface station from 1958.

Skarpnäck station is decorated with granite benches and a red tiled floor. The red color dominates the station, as you'll see in the pictures below.
