I am considering relocating to Trondheim, Norway and any information on the city will be very much appreciated - on quality of life, weather, unemployment rate etc. Do you think it would be possible for a person that does not speak norwegian to find a job there in the area of marketing & branding? Thanks. I am an EU citizen, and I know danish (intermediate level) which makes it possible to understand basic Norwegian.

Eurotrip Don :
"Possible, yes. Likely, no. If you do not have a EU country passport, then you must first get a job offer from a company in Norway, apply for work and residence, prearrange your living arrangements, pay the application fee, and wait 2-3 months for an answer. Language and culture is a must. You need to either learn Norwegian well before arrival, or set aside your first 3-4 months in intensive language courses (at your expense). Quality of life is high; crime is low in Norway. Taxes are very high, taking about 50% of your income unless you qualify for some reductions. Cost of living is very high."

"My wife is from Trondheim, and I’m there visiting her family several times every year. Its a lovely place with a great shopping district, and a lot of nice restaurants, nightclubs and bars. There are several Universities there so there is alot of young people from different part of the country. I’m in marketing my self and must say that there is not alot of jobs there in our line of work. But recently several companies like Google have put up office there. So i think its going to be more and more. As an EU citizen there should be easy to get a possibility to job there. About language; English is understood by 95 % + so it should be no problem. If you understand danish you should be able to read alot of Norwegian, but you may want to learn some more spoken language. You will find spoken language a bit different. I know alot of peoples working in norway in marketing and advertising not knowing a word in Norwegian so it shouldn’t be so hard. Norway has high taxation levels, and the prices are high. But so are the wages. And besides we have one of the best social security systems in the world. I pay about 35-40 % tax I guess. Living standards are very high, Norway is rated top 3 every year in the UN living standard meter, and the unemployment is low (about 4-5 %)."

"Tromso, by far!"
Erik I :
"It's very long between Tromso and Oslo, so if you're going to visit Oslo and either Tromso or Trondheim, then visit Trondheim, -or be prepared to go by plane. However, there still is a very good reason to visit Tromso instead of Trondheim, because in Tromso you might be lucky and see the midnight sun if it's nice weather when you are there. If thats what you want, try to be there around June 23."

Henrick Moller was a silversmith who created jewelry, particularly in the 1880s in Norway. What would one of his pieces sell for today?

graytrees :
"Found a piece on that's for sale: $275 for a brooch. But that's the only one I could find. That's a good price for a silver brooch, though."

The freshness gauge is so fresh that it is not yet on the market. It is being demonstrated at the Aqua Nor aquaculture exhibition in Trondheim, Norway this week. By using light at different wavelengths, it can quickly determine how fresh the fish is. The method is very reliable and can be used by seafood counters as well as in the industry.
