Älvdalens Church

History[edit | edit source]

Älvdalen Municipality is a municipality in Dalarna County in central Sweden and its seat is located in the town of Älvdalen.
The two parishes Särna and Idre were ceded to Sweden from Norway under the treaty of Brömsebro on 13 August 1645.
In 1971 the three municipalities Särna, Idre, which itself had been split off from Särna in 1916, and Älvdalen were united to form the present municipality.
Älvdalen literally means River Valley, a name stemming from the area around the town Älvdalen, situated along the Österdal River, in the municipality's southern part.
