Norway’s third largest city (after Oslo and Bergen), Trondheim has a charming and appealing intimacy. Today the city is famous as the center of Norway’s technology industry—the country’s own Silicon Valley—but it’s the historic sites that interest most travelers. Trondheim was the capital of Norway until the 13th century, and Nidaros Cathedral, the country’s only Gothic cathedral, houses the tomb of St. Olav, an 11th-century king and the country’s patron saint. A five-minute walk from the cathedral and over the Bakke Bridge which spans the Nidelva river will take you to Bakklandet, a charming neighborhood of former fishermen’s homes that now house boutiques and restaurants.
