about Trondheim

The city Trondheim in the county of Sør-Trøndelag, Norway, has 154,351 inhabitants as of January 1, 2004, and an area of 341 km². A large number of registered students, 29203 (as of 2003), also reside in the city; students are typically registered in their home towns/municipalities.

Trondheim is the third largest city in Norway, located in the geographical centre of the country. The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is located here. The local newspaper is Adresseavisen, the oldest active newspaper in Norway (established 1767).

Trondheim history

Trondheim was founded as Nidaros by Viking King Olav Tryggvason in 997 A.D. In the beginning it was the seat of the King, and therefore, for a time, the capital of Norway. Leif Ericson lived in Trondheim around 1000 A.D. as a member of the Praetorian guard around King Olaf Tryggvason. A statue of Leif, donated by the "Leif Ericsson Society" in Seattle, is located at the seaside, close to the old Customs Building, the cruise ship facilities and the new swimming Hall. The statue is a replica, the original being located at a Seattle marina.

Trondheim is located at the mouth of the river Nidelva, due to the favorable harbour and sheltered condition. The river used to be deep enough for most boats in the middle ages. An avalanche of mud and stones partly ruined these favorable harbour-conditions in the mid 17th century.

The city has experienced several fires. Since its old parts are mainly build out of wood, this had led to severe damage. Infamous fires ravaged the city in 1598, 1651, 1681, 1708, 1717 (two fires that year), 1742, 1788, 1841, and 1842. It must be noted that these are only the worst cases. The 1651 fire destroyed 90% of all buildings within the city limits. The fire in 1681 (the "Horneman Fire") led to an almost total reconstruction of the city, overseen by General Johan Caspar von Cicignon (originally from Luxembourg). Broad boulevards like Munkegaten were made, with no regard for property rights, in order to stop the next fire. This gave the sleepy provincial town of roughly 8000 inhabitants a certain flair.
