Trondheim

About 10 years ago we took a day to walk through Trondheim, about one hour by car from where we live. Like many other cities, it is cut by a river, Nidelva. The third biggest city in Norway, with almost 200.000 inhabitants. Established by  Olav Trygvason over a thousand year ago.

Below, you see a few shots we have taken back then. We start with Nidarosdomen, or The Nidaros cathedral, which was being repaired at that time.

Right around the cathedral, there’s the Erkebispegården, a historical museum, which like the Cathedral, was burnt and restored.

This tower is a restaurant, called Tyholt Tårnet with a spinning restaurant Egon Tårnet. A popular place to eat.

This is the Munkholmen island, in Trondheim’s fjord. It served multiple purposes over the years. According to Wikipedia: “The islet has served as a place of execution, a monastery, a fortress, prison, and a World War II anti-aircraft gun station.

And to close the post, flowers on the doorsteps of a pastel pink house.

This is not a travel blog, and we don’t have any affiliation with the services on the links we shared. We just wanted this brief information to help you, if you decide to visit Trondheim.
