I studied in Trondheim from 1994 to 1999 at the <a href="www.ntnu.no">Norwegian University for Science and Technology</A>, so I've got to know the city quite well.
It is one of the major cities in Norway, and always arguing with Bergen over which city is the best. I guess it all boils down to what you like: Rain or just periods of it.
The city was founded in 997 by Olav Trygvason. You can see his statue in the town square.
At his feet is a head. That is the head of Kvark the trell (the slave) who helped Olav find his rival Ladejarl. Olav had promissed a reward to whomever helped him find the rival, but Kvark also was the slave of that rival so instead of a reward, he was beheaded. The moral being that the master should be able to trust his slave.
