A symbol of Oulu city, which is a must go to during a visit. A big, fat policeman statue in the center of Oulu is a great meeting point. Scenery in the market square in Summer is very lovely.

This funny little statue standing in Market Place, is landmark in Oulu. Toripolliisi actually means Market Place's Police in local dialect. Worth of little stop and pic, because you probably will be near this anyway
