View from Elgeseter Bridge: Nidelva and Kristiansten Fortress on top of the hill. The fortress was built as a defence against the Swedes, see caption of next picture. On this day they have hoisted the big flag because the royal family is in town celebrating the centennial of the crowning in the Nidaros Cathedral of King Haakon VII, the first Norwegian monarch in modern times.
