Nidarosdomen was beautiful to see, the detail was amazing inside and outside. In order to enter the church you first must visit the gift shop which is adjacent to the church and purchase a ticket. While in the church there was a man playing the...More

It is a grand majestic structure next to Nidelva which was witness to several major historical events in Norway. It was where coronation ceremony was performed until it was abolished. It is a must visit in Trondheim, be it both summer or winter

This is a beautiful cathedral with great history. The architecture and history is interesting and you will need the English speaking tour to get the details if you don’t speak Norwegian.
