Falun is the capital of the Swedish province Dalarna and the centre of an ancient mining area which has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Copper mining has taken place here at least since the 9th century. Falun boasts a number of other world-class sights apart from the unique mining environment. The city is a year-round sporting destination, where you can hike, cycle or ski through the richly varied scenery.
