Trondheim is a port city that combines a long and colourful history with modern-day industry and innovation to create one of the largest and most popular destinations in Norway. The skyline is dotted with historical structures like Nidaros Cathedral and Kristiansten Fortress while the pedestrianised streets of the city centre host a fantastic array of quirky little speciality shops. Be sure to get some photos of the colourful old warehouses that line the river, too. 

    Being a university city, Trondheim naturally has a lively and budget-friendly nightlife, as well as some interesting sights and attractions that don’t count their age in centuries. The Trondheim Science Centre is a great example, though it’s just one of a wide selection of museums around the city. And, of course, there are plenty of superb places to get a taste of fresh local seafood.
