Lets kick of this new blog with a little general introduction of our home city – Trondheim!
Trondheim lies on the south shore of Trondheim Fjord at the mouth of the River Nidelva. The city is a modern city with lots of charm and history and perfectly located almost in the middle of Norway! With Trondheim airport Vaernes we are a natural incoming spot for the best Norwegian Adventures in Norway and in the north of Scandinavia.
It has a population of 205.332 as of 2021, and is the third most populous municipality in Norway, and the fourth largest urban area, much thanks to the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), the Foundation for Scientific and Industrial Research (SINTEF), St. Olavs University Hospital and other technology-oriented institutions. With theese establishements and more, Trondheim has established itself as a leader in innovation and is known as Norway’s capital of knowledge. People from all around the world attend our world class university every year.
But our city is more than knowledge and innovation!
The settlement was founded in 997 as a trading post, It was frequently used as the seat of the king, and it served as the capital of Norway during the Viking Age until 1217. Traces from the old ages can be found all over the city and surrounding areas. The most famous and visible crown juvel of our town is the Nidaros Cathedral and the Archbishop’s Palace witch was completed in year 1300.
So, its a modern multicultural city with lots of history and culture… But what is there to experience?
