"Norway lives up to the hype. It's a pricey destination! While not as expensive as Oslo, Trondheim lies a bit farther north in a more laid back and compact side of Norway."

The air is super fresh up here! Trondheim was colorful(even in winter) and English is common enough to get by with! I think the only bummer was having a long layover in Oslo. After a long transatlantic flight, having to sit in an airport another 5 hours is kind of brutal. On the plus side, Trondheim is one of those cities that you picture in your head when someone mentions Norway.

Early morning in Trondheim. Calm and quiet.

Statue of Olav Tryggvason, founder of Trondheim apparently. The statue also serves as a sun dial.

Map of Kotor. Small and easy to get around by foot.

Nidaros Cathedral

A short walk back from Bakklandet is Nidaros Cathedral in central Trondheim. Built in 1070 and one of the most important gothic monuments in Norway the details are mesmerizing. I lucked out with great lighting that day, so I particularly love these photos.

The cathedral was closed, but the outside was impressive.

One of the most intricate cathedrals I've seen in my travels for sure.

Bakklandet is an older part of the city, it is separated from the more modern side of Trondheim by an old pedestrian bridge.

Final Thoughts

Kotor is super pretty! It is on the small side, so maybe staying more than 3-4 days one might get bored, especially if the weather isn't good. But if the weather IS good, man it's gorgeous. The cruise ships that come in are kind of annoying as some areas end up being overrun with people with selfie sticks. Once the ships have moved out and darkness comes in it's peaceful, just you, the locals and the cats. Totally recommend giving Kotor a shot if you are in Montenegro or neighboring countries.
