Mining Area of the Great Copper Mountain in Falun, Sweden

Falun, Sweden
A tour of the Falun mine is a trip through history - it was once one of the world’s most important mining areas. The mine dates back over 1,000 years and at its peak in the 17th century, it accounted for 70% of the western world’s copper production. As the major producer of copper, Sweden exerted a strong influence on the technological, economic, social, and political development of Europe.
