A symbolic compass in the floor helps commuters maintain their sense of direction. Again, this is station Danderyds sjukhus.

Maybe the name of a couple of streets would be more useful...

Any station has several signs giving directions by the platform.

"Exit that way for streets x, y and z"

This is more like a compensating measure for the fact that we're underground. And a simple decoration, mayhaps?

You are right in both cases, I like to know my position but find difficult to think that many others care. Anyway it's a simple and useful decoration.

The subway is a superb means of transportation but one drawback is the fact that stepping down into one "hole" and coming up through another one doesn't give a very good sense of the local geography.
