The iconic photo of Trondheim
Trondheim is the third largest city in Norway in terms of population, after Oslo the capital and Bergen. It is roughly in the middle of Norway when you look at a map, at ... 63 degrees north latitude, yes.
As our friend Wiki explains in detail (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trondheim), the city is very old. It was founded by the viking king Olaf Tryggvason in 997 (it was then called 'Nidaros'). Today, Olaf stands at the top of a column erected on the central square of Trondheim (the 'Torg' square). The city is located at the mouth of the river 'Nidelva', on the coast of a very wide fjord, the 'trondheimsfjord'.
