Trondheim was Norway's first capital, founded by Viking King Olav Tryggvason in 997. Today, it is the third largest city in the country and still the city where new kings receive their ceremonial blessings. It has been, and still is, a popular pilgrimage site. It is a regional capital and last but not least, a city of education and research. Both Microsoft and Yahoo have development departments located in Trondheim.
Situated in the county of Sør-Trøndelag, Trondheim is pretty far north. In fact it is only 500 kilometres from the Arctic Circle, but the warm Gulf Stream blesses Trondheim with a fairly mild climate.
