Welcome to Oulu, the heart of Finland! If you pick up a map and draw a straight line from Nuorgam to Hanko, you will find Oulu at the exact mid-point of this line. The distance to both ends is around 600 kilometres. King Carl IX of Sweden founded the city of Oulu at the mouth of the Oulujoki river in 1605. The name Oulu comes from the Sami word Owla, which means 'floodwater'. The Oulu River delta is an ancient trading centre. Oulu was once known for wood tar and salmon. In the peak years of the tar trade at the end of the 19th century, more than 80,000 thousand barrels of wood tar were shipped abroad annually. One barrel contained 125 litres, which means that more than 10 million litres were exported each year. Once a town engaged in international trade and known for wood tar and salmon, Oulu has evolved into a competence centre of more than 140,000 residents and is now the fifth-largest city in Finland. Oulu is an excellent choice for holidays and conferences. The city is easy to reach any time of the year. Bright, warm summers and cold, snow-rich winters are both present in the cycle of seasons. Diverse shopping, cultural and restaurant services guarantee unforgettable experiences for visitors.
