Explore the town of Trøndelag,in the heart of Norway’s history.

Trondheim, the capital of Trøndelag,has been one of the country’s most important cities ever since it was founded by Olav Tryggvason in 997. It was soon called Nidaros and served as the capital of Norway for around 250 years during the Viking Age.

Nidaros Cathedral’s tower lining,i was climbing the tower with really tiny hallway. The 172 steps to the top are dark and narrow,but the climb was well worth it. Once at the top,you can enjoy an unrivelled view of the city centre.
