The Police statue at the Market Square in Oulu is symbol of the town. Everyone wants to take a selfie with him. He is an imposing figure at the Market Hall. A must, when you visit Oulu. more »
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 »
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.
