First established as a tradepost in 997 and then acting as the Viking capital until 1217, Trondheim, in Central Norway, is the country's third largest municipality.
Originally found in Haltdalen, Haltdalen Stave Church was possibly constructed in the year 1170. Presently, this old stave church is exhibited at Trondheim's Sverresborg museum. The exhibited place of worship is a redesigned model of two churches found in Haltdalen and Alen. The portal and the west wall are from the medieval Alen church. This stave church features a single nave and remains a striking example of east-Scandinavian architectural style. It is also the only church of its type to have been still preserved.
