Trondheim, Norway’s third biggest city, is a beautiful historical town placed by the Trondheimsfjord in the middle of Norway. The city is known as Norway’s best student city and has a busy night life and lots of shops and cafes. Trondheim was long known for the best football team in Norway – Rosenborg – and the large cathedral Nidarosdomen, a goal for pilgrims from all over the world. The best time to visit Trondheim is in the summer – when the nights are bright and the temperature up to 25 degrees. At this time of year you can enjoy the cosy streets of Bakklandet, famous for its small shops, cafes and pubs. You can also try the famous Trampe bicycle lift, which takes you and your bike up a steep hill – and straight to the hostel!
