Studying general relativity, with spacetime as a curved four-dimensional pseudo-Riemannian
space, much of ones physical intuition is lost. Furthermore, there no longer exists
any canonical way to visualise this space, in which all other physics take place. In this
paper, different representations of the Schwarzschild solution are studied, in an attempt
to build up an intuitive understanding of the behaviour of test particles in the vicinity
of a spherically symmetric and stationary source of gravity, such as a black hole. Three
representations of the Schwarzschild solution will be studied; the original Schwarzschild
representation, as well as the Fronsdal embedding and Kruskal-Szekeres transform.
