Dunfermline Trondheim Twinning Association


By Dunfermline.info - Tue, 12th Nov 2002

Trondheim City is the central focal point of the mid-Norway region, attracting people from both north and south along the coast for shopping and leisure, for financial and administrative services.
The city itself has a population of 145,000 plus a student population in excess of 20,000; the commuter catchment area has a population of 300,000.

The following is a message from Liv Sandven, Acting Mayor of Trondheim
"Trondheim, or Nidaros as it used to be called, was the first capital of Norway. The Sagas tell us how King Olav Tryggvason of Viking fame founded the city by the mouth of the River Nidelva in 997, (not long before Dunfermline became the Medieval capital of Scotland.)

Today Trondheim is a modern city, a centre of knowledge with a highly respected university, many popular colleges and a research community ranking among the best in Europe. You will find a wide variety of cultural and recreational activities in Trondheim, while work and education options abound. Here you can experience both the charm and intimacy of the small town and the plethora of choices of big-city life. While in Trondheim, you might want to visit Lerkendal, Trondheim`s football stadium, where many a mighty European football team has fallen to the powerful perennial contender in the Champions League - Rosenborg Ballklub.

You will find the people of Trondheim friendly and sociable. Trondheim is a very hospitable city, with its doors open wide to the world."

Trondheim in the Winter

The aims:
  • to continue and enhance the Bond of Friendship with the Youth of Trondheim established by the Youth of Dunfermline on 6th May 1945 and to promote and foster friendship and understanding between the people of Dunfermline and the people of Trondheim in Norway and those of other communities with which the Association may later form links, and
  • to encourage visits by individuals and groups to and from linked communities, particularly by children and young people, and the development of personal contacts, and by so doing to broaden the mutual understanding of the cultural, recreational, educational and commercial activities of the linked communities.


Committee members would be pleased to discuss any ideas to develop new links with Trondheim.
