Stay for May 17!Seventeenth of May - Norway's National Day celebrations. If you have not been to Norway on May 17, this will be a very special treat whether you stay in Trondheim to watch our 3 parades or stop over in Oslo and watch the 2+hr children's parade passing the King's Castle. All of Norway will be celebrating waving our Norwgian flags in honor of our Constitution signed on May 17, 1814! Note: Norway was until 1814 part of Denmark, then "given" to Sweden after Denmark sided with Napoleon (and lost). Norway became independent from Sweden in 1905 (peacefully!), but managed to get the constitution written in 1814 right before joining Sweden.
