Garphyttan national park

Garphyttan National Park was founded in 1909 and is one of Sweden’s oldest national parks. At that time it was believed that the richness of the flora was best preserved without human influence. Only when the land began to become overgrown and the meadow plants declined was it understood that the flora was dependent on both the farmer’s activities and grazing animals.
