Zorn’s statue of Gustav Vasa in Mora attractions. Mora is particularly associated with King Gustav Vasa (1496-1560) and artist Anders Zorn (1860-1920). Gustav Vasa’s travels in Dalarna in 1520 to mobilize local men against the Danish occupation have left many traces. Near Mora, the Utmeland monument (I860) shows several romanticized paintings chronicling Gustav’s adventures. It was built over the cellar where he is said to have hidden from Danish t scouts. The annual Vasaloppet ski race (245) is another memorial to the king. At the finishing line in Mora stands Anders Zorn’s statue of Gustav Vasa and the nearby Vasaloppsmuseet recounts the history of the famous ski race.

Anders Zorn became known internationally not least for his portraits of plump, naked local women. He was genuinely interested in peasant culture and an ardent collector of local handicrafts. In Zorngarden. which he built himself, he revelled in a world of National Romanticism. On the estate there are a number of older buildings which have been moved here, such as the 12th-century bakehouse which was used as a studio. The nearby Zornmuseet displays Zorn’s own art and private collections.
