History[edit | edit source]

Rättvik Municipality is a municipality in Dalarna County in central Sweden and its seat is located in the town of Rättvik.
On February 24, 1618 the parish of Boda was created from Rättvik parish.  In 1963 the municipality was reunited with Boda, which had been detached from it in 1875, and in 1974 Ore was added, thus forming the present municipality.
