      TORSÅNG - THE CULTURAL HERITAGE

      This part of our country, which is called Dalarna, is full of historical memories. Torsång is a small village, and you will find it if you follow the road 8 km southeast of Borlänge along the river Dalälven. People have lived here since the Stone Age and the place is one of the oldest parishes in Dalarna.

      The church is the oldest preserved building in Torsång. It was built in the 14th century, and the christening font is from the 13th century. The building is made of granite and brick, and is very beautiful.


      To understand the importance of Torsång, you have to know a little about the geographi of Dalarna. In Dalarna there are two rivers taking up all water from the western and northern parts. They are called Västerdalälven and Österdalälven. These two rivers brings together in Dalälven a couple of miles north of Torsång, and floats through Torsång out to the sea. The water from the eastern part of Dalarna floats down to a lake called Runn. Runn is connected to Dalälven with a small river called Lillälven.


      Falu Koppargruva has always needed lots of wood. At the beginning of the 17th century was the neighbourhood out of wood and the king of Sweden, Karl IX, banned cutting trees in an area of 10 km around Falun. Since the rivers always have been used for transporting it became natural to take the trees in the big forests in the eastern and northern parts of Dalarna, and from there float them down the river to Falun by way of Torsång.


      In the middle of the sixties the last log was floated down this river, and this village began to die.


      At the end of the seventies some of the government institutions were moved to Borlänge. Lots of people had to move from Stockholm to Borlänge. This was a new time of prosperity for Torsång. About 150 houses and a new provision shop were built in Torsång. This generation now has grown-up children and the provision shop has had to close down.


      Nowadays you can say that this village begins to come to life when it's time for the spring flood, and that it slows down when the trees lose their leaves. [13]
