I'm normally not into churches, but this particular one is really beautiful. Really worth a visit.

Nidaros is considered Norway's national sanctuary. The cathedral was begun in 1070 to house the tomb of St. Olaf. Unfortunately the inside was closed the day I visited, but it was still very impressive from the outside. 70 kr admission fee.

The main attraction in Trondheim. The most important church in Norway. The place where the legendary Norwegian King St. Olav was said to be buried under. It is one of the destinations for pilgrims walk.

A jewel for contemplation.
Unlike cathedrals of southern Europe, the Nidaros cathedral is not a place that impresses by an abundance of wealth, but by its simplicity. This simplicity makes the cathedral a jewel for contemplation.
The history of the cathedral is fascinating. In the Middle Age, it was an important centre of pilgrimage. And after centuries of decline following the reform, its restoration started in 1867. The restoration, or rather reconstruction, would not have been possible without a growing national sentiment in Norway that mobilised people for this wondrous work.
Note: free admission for meditation accompanied by an organ concert every Saturday at 13:30 (duration 30 min). Also, on Monday, Tuesday and Friday in summer, free organ concert at 13:00.

Beautiful gothic style cathedral in the middle of Trondheim. This is certainly worth a look for anyone who enjoys a good stained glass rose window or dramatically sculpted organ.
