The information and shopping centre Siula is situated in Saariselkä, Northern Lapland. Beside the exhibition there are two information points, souvenir shops, local delicacies shop, clothing store and cafeteria/restaurant, just to mention few. The building itself is an important part of the co-operational work with Finland's neighbouring countries, Northern Norway and Russia.

The exhibition was part of a project called “The Northernmost Europe” and it was made together with different partners from Finland, Northern Norway and Russia.
