Trondheim is situated on a peninsula near the Atlantic Coast about three degrees south of the Arctic Circle. It is Norway's third largest city with a population of 180,000 people. It was founded by King Olav Tryggvesson and served as Norway's first capital, later developing into a religious center. The Nidaros Cathedral, largest ecclesiastical building in Norway, dates from the 13th Century. The Archbishop's residence is Scandanavia's oldest secular building.
In 1997, we paid an official visit to Trondheim to participate in the celebration of the city's 1,000th anniversary.
