TRONDHEIM – Trondheim 997

Trondheim, founded in 997 by viking king Olav Tryggvason, has been a communications and trade centre for over 1.000 years. The City was Norway’s first capital, and a centre for Christianity. With its more than 150,000 inhabitants, Trondheim is the third largest city of the country. The highest elevation is in Storheia, 565 meters above sea level. The city is situated next to a large fjord – Trondheimsfjorden.After the city burnt down in 1682, General Caspar Cicignon of Luxembourg was made responsible for the rebuilding. His Renaissance city plan laid the foundation for modern Trondheim. It is now a green city with a mixture of wide streets and modern buildings as well as picturesque wooden houses and narrow alleyways. In the middle of town visitors will find the lovely Stiftsgården, which is one of the king’s royal residences and the third largest wooden building in a Nordic country. The calm and beautiful river Nidelva winds through the heart of the city.

Coin is available at Nidaros Cathedral and at Visit Trondheim Tourist Office.
