PHOTO: from the copper mine in Falun, the glistening red metal was transported away to become roofs on cathedrals and palaces all over EUROPE.
Today the great copper mountain, STORA KOPPARBERGET, with the surrounding landscape is a unique memorial to Sweden's earliest history as an industrial nation.
Stora Kopparberget and Falun were inscribed on the World Heritage List in 2001
