The symbol of the city is Oulu Castle. Actually, nothing remained of the medieval castle; the last time it was burned by Russian troops in 1715. In 1875, an observatory was built on the former powder magazine. Since 1912, a cafe and a small exhibition have been located inside.

Another symbol is a sculpture of a market policeman. Established in honor of the police who were on duty here many years ago.

We spent the night at Break Sokos Hotel Eden (booking.com), which is located on the largest island within the city. A local resort with a huge beach and promenade, a pleasant place. The hotel has its own water park.

You can walk here from the center, drive by car N 65 01.710 E 25 24.989 or by bus, use the route planner.
