History[edit | edit source]

Malung-Sälen Municipality is a municipality in Dalarna County in central Sweden and its seat is located in the town of Malung.
Malung Municipality was created in 1971 by the merging of old Malung with the adjacent entities Lima and Transtrand. In 2007 the Government of Sweden decided to approve the present name, which took effect on January 1, 2008. Very early this parish was created from Mora parish. It is believed that during the 1200's the parish of Lima was created from this parish.
