Oulu is Finland’s fourth largest city. It is a gateway to urban culture as well as to the unique nature of the North. Located on the shores of the Bay of Bothnia, you can find beautiful parks all around, ski tracks are well maintained in the winter-time and the archipelago nature of the Bothnian Bay is just around the corner. The city is where modern business and technology meet Northern peace and exoticism. Even though Oulu is known for its year-round cyclists, everything in the center is within walking distance.
