"The smell" Top 5 Page for this destination Oulu Favorite Tip by Scandic

Oulu Favorites: 16 reviews and 17 photos


Favorite thing: Oulu has grown because of it's mills and wooden products. Nowadays we still have memories of those times, the smell. Altough the mills are very fine and well created there are no science man who could delete this awful smell what comes from process of wood product production.
There is a big mill, Stora Enso. It's located in Nuottasaari, nearby harbour, and I'm living quite near of it. If it's winding from the south that smell comes from windows. But hey, you learn to live with it, but you can't tolerate it...
