Geocache Description:

Micro, please bring a pen.



NO:
På torget i Trondheim er det et yrende liv med marked, messer, konserter, utstillinger, og ikke minst den tradisjonsrike torghandelen. Her kan alle tilby varer i sin naturlige form fra jord-, skog- og hagebruk, og du kan finne et rikt utvalg i blant annet frukt og grønt, urter, bær, blomster, egg og ulike husflidsvarer. Vanligvis pleier statuen Torgkona av Tone Thiis Schjetne å skue utover de handlende på torget, men akkurat nå er hun på utlåns til Sverresborg Folkemuseum. Rett som det er huser Torget fantastiske konserter med store artister, og fylles fort med 10-15000 mennesker.

Torgkvadranten er et gedigent solur med statuen av Trondheims grunnlegger som viser. Olav Tryggvason grunnla Trondheim i 997, og fikk plass på sokkelen i 1921 da en av byens kjente forretningsmenn, Dyre Halse, ga det i gave til Trondheim by. Hele torget er nå stengt for trafikk, og er et trivelig sted å tilbringe tid i solen.

(På solfylte dager og andre dager med mye folk trengs litt ekstra sniking ("stealth"), for å logge cachen uoppdaget.)


ENG:
The center of Trondheim is often crowded with people and markets selling all sorts of fruits, vegetables, berries, merchandise and souveniers. Around you will find several shops, cafes, restaurants and other places worth a visit.
The man on the top of the statue is Olav Tryggvason. He founded Trondheim in the year 997, and has been standing in the center of his city since 1921. It is said he is looking out to the sea to guard the city from a viking attack.
The statue "Torgkona" (could be translated to something like "The Lady of the Town Square") by Tone Thiis Schjetne is usually standing in the south-east corner of the square, looking out to the shoppers, but is now on loan to the museum at Sverresborg. When there are conserts at the town square, it can easily house up to 10-15000 people.

(On days with nice weather and many people around, stealth is required to grab this cache unnoticed.)
Enjoy your caching!
