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.

Short, fat and severe looking policeman, which is a symbol of Oulu city. Located at the city center and near to the old harbor. There are several beautiful sightseeing near this sculpture.

A fun statue to come across as you're out walking, good to have picture's taken with. Based in the old part of Oulu with the market hall & eating places nearby. It was under snow when we visited, I think in the spring & summer...More

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

Great meeting place and a place to watch people. It is standing right in front of the market hall. Bring some time to hang out

Well, when going down to the marketplace, you'll bump into this statue, and I think that's about it...

When ever you're in Oulu, you'd better meet and greet Mr. Toripolliisi, a legend ;) He is about only "person" all Finns know by name
