Oulu is a youthful and attractive city on the Gulf of Bothnia, at the mouth of the Oulu River. In Oulu, a modern urban city meets the peace and exoticism of the North. Oulu’s maritime feel and the shops and cafés of its seafront market are popular hallmarks of the city.

Nature destinations in the Gulf of Bothnia archipelago are a short distance from the city. In summer the sand dune island of Hailuoto is accessible by ferry, and in winter it can be reached by a unique ice road. Nature and outdoor activities also play a key role in the city centre. During summer, the cityscape is enhanced by beautifully kept green parks and abundant flower displays. In winter, cross-country skiing trails are well maintained and accessible from the city centre.

Oulu was established by the Swedish King Charles IX in 1605. The estuary of the Oulu River is an ancient trading post, and the market place with its charming granaries has served as a harbour and trading place since the 18th century. In the 19th century Oulu was a leading exporter of tar. Oulu’s enthusiastic and enterprising atmosphere dates from that period, and Finland's fifth largest city is nowadays known as a technology city and the engine of growth for Northern Finland. Today, Oulu’s central square and pedestrian streets buzz with activity when shoppers descend on the city's department stores and boutiques. The idyllic milieu of the Market Square and the cheerful service enjoyed in the Market Hall prompt visitors to make purchases, and to eat well.

In the cityscape of Oulu, old meets new. Fires have ravaged the cityscape on several occasions – there have been as many as ten fires. The old buildings of the city centre date from after the 1882 fire. Before the fire, buildings were wooden and single-storey, but afterwards sturdier stone houses were built in the city. The centre of Oulu is small considering the number of residents, but the size makes it very convenient and easy to navigate. Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of the Radisson Blu Hotel, Oulu.
