Sightseeing in Eskola
Eskola is a village of pine forests, ridges and rural fields. The historically significant village of Leppilampi by a beautiful lakeside is a part of Eskola. In Leppilampi you can find a marked nature trail, which is 12,5 km long.
The old forest railroad is an important part of Eskola’s past. The railroad was used by the Ministry of Forestry from the 1920’s to the 1960’s and during that time it was a very significant employer in this area. There are a number of sites in Eskola that commemorate the old forest railroad or the «Little railroad»: the forest railroad museum, the old locomotive shed that serves as a village hall, the miniature of the railroad and many more.
In Eskola you can also find for example a man-made swimming pond, a wetland for game birds (a nice location for bird watching etc.), a village chapel and of course the popular summer theatre Eskolan kesäteatteri.
