Good to know


Swedish currency is the crown (krona). You can exchange money at Svea Exchange in Falangallerian by the main square in Falun, but bank cards are widely accepted throughout Sweden. You can also take out crowns with your bank card from any cash machine. 

Cash machines 

There are several cash machines near the main square in Falun. On Åsgatan in front of Kristine Church on the main square, you will find cash machines in both directions, close to the church.
