Trondheim is an administrative center with well-developed shipbuilding, machine, metal, and fish industry, as well as important commercial and fishing seasons. It is the third-largest city of Norway, located in central Norway, on the west coast, at the Trondheim Fjord. Thanks to its strategic location on the bay and the vast fertile valley, the city was the headquarters of the Norwegian authorities for a long time. Today it is also a very important academic center, in which a large part of the population is made up of students.
