Trondheim is a town on the Trondheimer Fjord in central Norway
. The 11th-century Gothic Nidaros Cathedral has an ornate rose window and a complex western facade. Nearby is the Erkebispegården Museum with archaeological discoveries and sculptures, including gargoyles that were once attached to the cathedral. The Ringve Museum is a music museum in an old manor house with a barn.
Trondheim, Norway's third largest city is also one of the oldest in the world. Established as a trading post by the Vikings in AD 997, it was the capital of Norway until 1217, and new kings are still crowned. Constructed on the peninsula and connected to the mainland at its western end, Trondheim is the main town of Sør-Trøndelag County in central Norway. It is a popular stop on the Hurtigruten route, a coastal ferry that connects towns from Bergen
to Kirkenes, and its location on the Trondheimsfjord makes it a good base for fjord cruises. Like most of northern Norway, Trondheim has not had any darkness from mid-May to mid-July, and while it benefits from a mostly mild maritime climate, there is good skiing in the surrounding areas.

The Cathedral is the northernmost medieval cathedral in the world and one of the key tourist attractions of the region. Kings have been baptized and buried here, and it has been a condition of the Norwegian constitution since 1814 that the King be crowned at Trondheim Cathedral. The transept and the chapter house are of late Romanesque style, influenced by the Norman architecture of England
