Life feels so much lighter near this wolf, for everybody. You can sit with him, discuss about weather or love. take a selfie, of course.

The wolf in Joensuu: it's a must see. A sculpture sitting on a bench. Thousands of tourists have been posing with this gentleman and thousands of more will in the future. Go and take your photo with it!
