Toripolliisi (The Bobby at the Market Place in English) is a bronze sculpture located at the market square in Oulu, Finland. It was made by sculptor Kaarlo Mikkonen in 1987, and it is his only publicly displayed sculpture. The sculpture measures 220×150×112 centimetres (86.6×59×44 inches), and it was named in honour of the bobbies that once patrolled the market place. The sculpture was funded with the help of a public fund raising started in 1985, and it was revealed in September 1987.Discover how to plan a Oulu trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.
This is a truly sight to behold. You can find this statue near the harbor and market. Apparently it represents a true Oulu spirit or something like that. more »
Had an early dinner. As starter I had snails with bluecheese...they were ok, could have been a bit hotter. As main course reindeer was an excellent choise and creme brulee as dessert was delicious... 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.
