Vintage Postcards - Munkegata & Stiftsgården - Trondheim, Norway

Munkegata - the friendliest street in Europe, says Leopold von Buch - Munkegata, which runs straight from the Cathedral down through the town towards Ravnekloi, so-called fjord down at the End, which is Fisketorg; Munkegata, directly in sight with Munkeholmen right out in the fjord, was wide with red cloth in the middle of a table bridge.

The Munkegata leads directly to the Torget, to Trondheim's central square, which marks the center of the old town. You can walk the Munkegata a little further north and find the Stiftsgården.

Stiftsgården is the royal residence in Trondheim, Norway. It is centrally situated on the city's most famous thoroughfare, Munkegaten.
