  • This sympathetic bronze sculpture has been standing next to the Market Hall since 1987. It was named in honor of the bobbies that once patrolled the market place.  more »
  • It is just a statue of a short fat policeman, nothing special. I don't know why this has become famous.  more »

  • Average restaurant, great location. Food and drinks are good, but nothing special. Kids salmon plate for 8€ is really good, almost like the adults plate, that costs more than double.
  • Probably one of the best steaks in Oulu. No, don't order anything other than tenderloin steak. Expensive, but definatively worth it. This one with goat cheese and new potatoes.
