A little old and tired. My grandmother, my grandfather, has been baptized and camped in this church and is a member until my death. According to the Russian religion, the members of the congregation were named before Russia. So my grandmother and grandfather were named Valentina and Valeeri. Although they were Estonians. His grandfather fought on the German side in 1940 against the Russian forces, was lightly wounded and did not go to war again. They gave birth to 5 children, 4 boys and a girl. In 1991, his grandfather left after seeing the coming of Estonia and the blue-black-white dream he had dreamed of.

Kristiansten Fortress

Kristiansten Fortress was built to protect the city against attack from the east. Construction was finished in 1685. General Johan Caspar von Cicignon, who was chief inspector of kuks fortifications, was responsible for the new town plan of Trondheim after the great fire of 18 April 1681. He also made the plans for the construction of Kristiansten Fortress.

The fortress was built during the period from 1682 to 1684 and strengthened to a complete defence fortification in 1691 by building an advanced post Kristiandsands bastion in the east and in 1695 with the now vanished Møllenberg skanse by the river Nidelven. These fortifications were encircled by a continuous palisade and thereby connected to the fortified city. In 1750 the fortress was modernized with new bastions and casemates to protect against mortar artillery.
