Trondheim is a port town on the central Norwegian coast, located on a fjord at the mouth of River Nid. This was the first Norwegian capital, founded 1,000 years ago under the name Nidaros.
Norway's monarchs are still crowned in the 12th century Nidaros Cathedral - Scandinavia's biggest medieval building and one of Europe's foremost Gothic monuments. The town is famous for its numerous wooden buildings and historic landmarks, mostly on an island between fjord and river, and has a lovely open-air folk-culture museum. Visit the famous museum of musical instruments in Ringve or Stiftsgarden Palace.
The town was established in 997 AD by Viking King Olaf I Tryggvasson as the settlement of an island on River Nidelv was easy to defend. The King, who attempted to establish united Norway, later chose the town for his residence Nidarnes. In 1152 Trondheim became an Archbishopric and bloomed into a spiritual centre until Reformation.
