Trondheim is a city and municipality
in Sør-Trøndelag, Norway.
|With a population of 170,936,
it is the third most populated municipality and de facto fourth largest
city in the country. It is the country seat of Sør-Trøndelag.
Trondheim lies on the south shore of the Trondheimsfjord at the mouth of
the river Nidelva. The city is dominated by the Norwegian University of
Science and Technology (NTNU), SINTEF, St. Olavs University Hospital and
other technology-oriented institutions.
The settlement was founded
in 997 as a trading post, and was the capital of Norway during the Viking
Age until 1217. From 1152 to 1537, the city was the seat of the Archdiocese
of Nidaros; since it has remained the seat of the Diocese of Nidaros and
the Nidaros Cathedral. It was incorporated in 1838. The current municipality
dates from 1964, when Trondheim merged with Byneset, Leinstrand, Strinda
Fortress, Trondheim, Norway, Scandinavia
|Most of the downtown area
is scattered with small specialty stores and shops, however a considerable
part of the downtown shopping area is concentrated around the pedestrian
street Nordre gate (English: Northern street) and the Olav Tryggvasons
gate even though the rest of the city center also is riddled with everything
from old, well established companies to new, hip and trendy shops.
In the mid- to late 1990s,
the area surrounding the old drydock and ship construction buildings of
the defunct Trondhjems mekaniske Værksted shipbuilding company at
the Nedre Elvehavn were renovated and old industrial buildings were torn
down to make way for condominiums. A shopping mall was also built, known
as Solsiden (The Sunny Side). This is a popular residential and shopping
area, especially for young people.
DORA 1 is a German submarine
base that housed the 13th Flotilla during the World War II occupation of
Norway. Today the bunker houses various archives, among them the city archives,
the university and state archives. More recently, DORA has been used as
a concert venue.
Kristiansten Fortress (pictured
above), built 1681–1684, is located on a hill east in Trondheim. It repelled
the invading Swedes in 1718, but was decommissioned in 1816 by Crown Prince
Regent Charles John.
