The wharves, Trondheim, Norway


The river Nidelva split Trondheim in two when the first development in 1600s took place. Before these buildings were built there were smaller houses being part of the central of Trondheim.

In 1600s Trondheim had grown so fast that there was a need to build on the other side of the river and the area was called Bakklandet. Bakklandet became Trondheim's first suburb.

Warehouses and trading centres were built later on in the 1600s along both side of Nidelva. None of the original buildings survived when the Swedes surrounded Trondheim in 1718.

The Norwegian troops decided to burn down Bakklandet in order to defend the city. The restoration progressed quickly.
