Some pictures I've taken in Dalarna County:

Siljan Lake - Sweden's sixth largest lake with surface area 354 km2 (including Orsa and Insjön lakes).
City that you can see in the distance is Mora, the largest town on it's shore.


Orsa Lake is small lake north of Siljan (connected to Siljan by a 4 km long sound)


Midsummer pole after celebrations (and Siljan lake in the background)


Traditional "Church boat".
In past times folk from villages round lake Siljan rowed together every Sunday across the lake to get to church (with 20 oarsmen in every boat)


Inlandvägen (E45) - longest road in Sweden (and one of the longest national roads in Europe) passes through Dalarna

Damn I love this area. I was born there (Few hundreds kilometers ln Avesta but still) and I visit it every summer. When I think about Sweden I automatically think of dalarna län for some reason. Old houses, big farms, dalarna concrete horse and 68. cadillac deville is in my childhood memories. And I really think in one day I return there :)

Thank you for sharing these beautiful pictures. Žuvinta is truelly an interesting lake, however I haven't seen it in reality myself.

Happy Easter!

Thank you for the pictures and recomendations. I, personally, would really love to visit the northern part of the country. :)
