Esso: it is large village by local standards.
There is a very good thing in Esso: a pool with warm termal water in the middle of the village. Thermal water goes right out of the ground. It's raining in the street , + 7 C, and you are swimming in the warm pool + 35-40 C!

Here's another interesting object - the ice-snow cave. The snow did not melt in the summer and the river has made a huge cave in it. You can go to the full size there. The lenth of cave is two or three hundred meters. Here I am at the outlet:

Water drips from the ceiling of the cave, it is cold inside, and you need wear a jacket.
