A famous statue in Oulu. According to a local, it's the place to take your travel selfie in. And who could complain? The cute police makes for a great selfie-buddy

It is not a special statue, but has some history. Be sure to take a pciture when you pass by the market hall!

This cute statue is watching the peaceful streets of Oulu by the main entrance of the Market Hall. Go shake his hands and take a picture with him. :-)
