Oulanka National Park was the first stop on our trip in #finland. One of the coldest day I’ve ever experienced. That morning it was -24 Celsius Degrees and it felt like my whole body was about to freeze but the scenery and the experience was absolutely amazing.
On the final day of 2019, I escaped the city and entered into a wild land full of snow, and I tried to find out the brightest star of the star field.

###trip# Europe, also known as "Europe", the name is derived from the Greek mythology "Europa" (Greek: ), Europe is located in the northwest of the Eastern Hemisphere Ministry, north of the Arctic Ocean, west of the Atlantic Ocean, the southern Mediterranean Atlantic Ocean and the Black Sea. There is a fat policeman in the town of Oulu. Many people who come to travel will take photos with this iconic attraction. It is also representative of the security of the city. It is a suitable life for residents. Small town.
Located in the heart of Oulu, this hotel in Lapland Hotel Oulu Oulu is our first night in Northern Europe and is part of the Intercontinental Group. Oulu is small, so it is convenient to live there. This location is especially good, just beside the church in Oulu, and only a few hundred meters away from the centre of Oulu in the heart of the city. Although Oulu is small, it is also a city, so it is convenient to eat and buy things. Of course, it is also especially suitable for friends who love to take pictures. Oulu, covered in snow, is on the outside. The room is quite spacious, although the site is written on 22 square meters, but the two people actually live up enough space. The black beige color scheme and the antlers on the wall are typical of the Nordic Lapland style. All the interiors in Finland are particularly warm. I remember that we were frozen into a dog on the first night after eating dinner from the outside. Once inside, we were cured. One more thing, the restaurant at this hotel is very large and elegant. The hotel's breakfast should be the best in the whole hotel, and the restaurant environment is very Lapland. Oulu was once a town known for its tar and squid. When you saw the squid in various ways, you know that rumors are not false. Since then, we have eaten countless squid in Northern Europe. It can be seen that the Nordic on the tip of the tongue is inseparable from the fish. The window of the hotel room is an elementary school. As soon as the class time is over, a group of bear children and children are rushing out and cheering on the playground. This vibrant and energetic picture lights up our new day's journey.

Fat police, Oulu city icon This red house is the market hall on the Oulu Market Square. It was built in 1901 and the building follows the simple style of Northern Europe. Different from the general vegetable market, the market hall also has a coffee breakfast stall and some local hand-made stalls selling reindeer skin and wooden decorations, which are quite old-fashioned. Undoubtedly, inside and outside the halls of the Oulu market, you can touch the civilian life closest to Finland. The morning market hall is not open yet, and the hall is empty. In the summer, the square in front of the market will be extraordinarily lively. Various open-air booths will be built along the road. In the winter, due to the very low temperature, the front door is deserted and people are concentrated in the indoor heating. Although we missed the market hall in Oulu because it was too early, we would never miss an Oulu celebrity here. It is the fat policeman in front of him, called Toripolliisi in Finnish. This is also the city icon of Oulu, which stands in front of the market hall and faces the sea. There are many versions of the fat police story. One version I heard is that Oulus law and order is very good. I dont need a policeman. I just need a bronze statue of a fat policeman to maintain the market square here. Listening to the legend. . The fat policeman was very cute, and he touched the belly of the fat policeman and took a picture with him. It became a must for Oulu.
