My World Tuesday



This is the oldest Social Institution in Europe, Trondheims Hospital. Founded September 13, 1277 by Archbishop Jon Raude when Magnus Lagabøter (Magnus the law-mender) was King of Norway.

This building is restored several times.

  5. This is so fascinating! Here in the states it's hard to conceive that there were institutions that far back and for it to still be around and in use is marvelous! Your photos are wonderful, as always! Thanks for sharing!

  14. Wow. The building has many stories to tell.

    I have been busy so haven't been able to comment, but wanted to tell you those Musk Ox are magnificent! You must have gone on quite a trek to find them!

  17. A truly interesting and beautiful MY WORLD post. The lovely sky and tree reflections in the windows could have been for SkyWatch also.
    The Bishop must have been an enlightened personage.

  20. Flotte bilder og kjekk info for de som ikke fulgte med i historie timen. :)
    Hva er det på veggene ? Rød velur eller Lucis ?

  21. What a great building and i love how old these buildings are and still standing. The European countries have so much history and architect.

  22. Even with restoration, the hospital must have been built very well to still be standing after more than 700 years!

  23. Thanks for your visit. Your photos are great as always. Why does it say Trondhiem on the hospital, instead of Trondheim? Is that "ny norsk" or "lands mål"?

    ReplyDelete
  24. I like the colour of the facade. Very intense.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Takk Ivar, jeg trodde også at det var gammel norsk, men jeg var ikke helt sikker på.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wow. That's more than 3 times older than my country. That kind of history astounds me.

    I LOVE your periscope photo!

  27. Strange light. HDR? or real?

  29. That is a great picture! And such an old building, nothing like that in the states, but you know that already.

  30. looks so cold still. Love that interesting pink color. Brings so much character to the hospital. And for something that's standing since 1277, this building is in really good shape! wow!
