ah, so those guys have 'those' downtowns, the ones not very dense, here in russia we call that a 'center' when it isnt so dense, but anyways, my town has the same-looking downtown as yours, but most of the buildings look different...

That was a fantasitc photo tour. I have heard of Trondheim, but I didn't know that much abuot it. The wooden houses look almost like suburban america, but not quite:)

Density is relative. Cities in Europe have less vertical density,but usually more horizontal density.

Amazing photos! I love this photo: http://www.idi.ntnu.no/~roger/trheim/Sentrum_1.jpg

I have not seen the northern lights in ages. We can typically see them at least a couple times each year, but I have managed to miss seeing them every time. Every time they say we will be able to see them it's cloudy out. I haven't seen them since 1991! LOL.

@ Allan/Neo

Here we can see the northern light the whole winter, when its clear sky. The northern light usually occure in the evenings around 21.00 to 01.00. Some times its quite weak, but in the autumn we can have a very strong light who covers about the whole sky. Then the northern lights is roling over in great speed, and in different colours. But this autumn we haven't had so strong northern lights, probably about the same as in the image from Trondheim. Saw the light several times last week, btu nothing specal actually.

@ Spartan

Yes Trondheim has a lot of wooden buildings. The oldest ones is the brews which is from the around 1750. And thats quite old to be wood, only the stave churchs is older. These buildings could be far older, but Trondheim has been devastated by fire several times. The whole city burn down in 1680, and they rebuilt the city in wooden buildings with a new street map. But in 1708 the whole city burned down again, it was then they decidet to built concrete buildings. We can find these concrete buildings mostly over whole downtown today. Then we have several large wooden building areas around downtown.

What a beautiful city. I would like to visit there one day. I think my favorite parts are the low rise apartment buildings. They indicate a high level of quality and craftsmanship.

I like that Scandinavians have no problems with integrating the modern in with the historic. People here have a crazy brick fetish, if a proposal doesn't ape 19th century designs, people go crazy.

Hello to the Norwegians from a northern Minnesotan!

I believe Minnesota is Norway's little colony... and the Norwegian culture is strong here.

(My city is filled with Lutherans who insist upon eating Lutefisk and Lefse every Christmas)

Trondheim looks like a beautiful city. I will visit there some day.

Lutefisk and Lefse is very famous traditional food. As a youth i don't eat much Lutefisk though anymore! But Lefse is still popular, my favorite is Vestlands-lefse, while i don't enjoy some others that much.

Minnesota is sure Norways little colony, also south/north Dakota. I have relatives which i know of both in Minnesota and Wisconsin. And im not the only Norwegian with relatives from those states!
