Read more about Orsa

Orsa is a small municipality and urban centre north of Lake Siljan in Dalarna. The name of the town comes from the Ore River, which flows down through the town to Lake Orsa south and southwest of the centre of Orsa. Mora is located about 15 km south of Orsa. The town is very small. There are only about 5300 inhabitants in the urban centre (about 7000 in the municipality). The main destination is the Orsa Bear Park with Polar World.

Communications to and from Orsa are actually quite good. The E45 motorway passes through Orsa, and in the summer it is sometimes possible to take the Inlandsbanan train to and from the town.

Orsa has a long history. The site of today’s Orsa was actually populated as early as the Stone Age. The settlements came about mainly because of the rich supply of hunting. In fact, many ancient trapping pits still exist today in the forests around Orsa.

Sights and history

Orsa offers fantastic nature and many impressive sights. Due to the size of the town, the entertainment offer is not very extensive, but you still have plenty of opportunities to go out for a good meal and a drink, not least in the hotels in the town.

Among the sights, the grinding stone quarries, Orsa church and the Iron Age graves are by far the most important. Otherwise, the entire Orsa Finnmark, with its so-called savings forest, can be considered an attraction. Here you can experience completely untouched lands that are perfect for hiking, for example.

Orsa Bear Park and Polar World

Orsa Björnpark is one of the most popular destinations in Dalarna. High up in the mountains overlooking both Lake Orsa and Lake Siljan, you’ll find the largest bear park in Europe. But there are not only bears here. You can also experience other Swedish predators, such as lynx, wolves and wolverines, in their natural habitats. Polar World is part of the bear park. It houses two polar bears in the world’s largest polar bear facility. Orsa Bear Park is open all year round.

The history of Orsa

Village formation started in the early 13th century, when the first parts of Orsa church began to be built. At the same time, the town began to attract attention because of the villagers’ ability to tame falcons. Word of the villagers’ skill spread all the way to the Pope in Rome. Interestingly, the first time Orsa is mentioned in writing is in a letter from the Pope himself, in which a request is made to order hunting falcons.

Poor village of Orsa

During the Middle Ages and well into more modern times, Orsa was a very poor village. Situated in a remote area and in a clearly sparsely populated area, it was difficult to create the conditions for successful industries. At the same time, for many years the Crown was very keen to tax the farmers and craftsmen in the area.

In the 18th century, grinding stone began to be mined in Kallmora, just outside the site of today’s Orsa. The quarrying was a success and provided quite a good income. The downside, however, was that life as a miner was miserable and most of those who worked in the mine died at a very young age.

The Inland Railway brought prosperity

The town was still poor well into the 19th century and many people from Orsa sought their fortune in America. However, those who stayed behind benefited greatly from the growth of the Inland Railway. In fact, for a few decades at the end of the 19th century, Orsa was one of the richest towns in Europe. Orsa is a beautiful part of Dalarna.
