Welcome to Falun Mine and the Falun World Heritage site in Falun, Dalarna County in Sweden.

Falun in Dalarna County was added to the World Heritage List at the meeting of Unesco?s World Heritage Committee in Helsinki on 13 December 2001. The Falun World Heritage site consists of three parts: The Mine Landscape, The Urban Landscape and the Master Miner?s Landscape.

Unesco?s citation read: ?The historical industrial landscape surrounding Stora Kopparberget (the Great Copper Mountain) and Falun constitutes one of the most outstanding areas of mining and the production of metals. The mining operation was closed down at the end of the twentieth century, but for hundreds of years it had exerted a strong influence on technical, social and political developments in Sweden and other European countries.?
