Saaremaa, Estonia

Saaremaa is the largest island in Estonia, measuring 2,673 km², located in the Baltic Sea. Its territory has been inhabited for at least 5000 years. The capital is Kuressaare, also famous for its medieval castle - which was originally built in wood between 1338 and 1380, and is on Unesco tentative list.
Kaali is a small group of nine unique meteorite craters on Saaremaa - the largest one measures 110 meters in diameter and contains a small lake known as Kaali järv. Fable-like!

  1. The newest methods date the falling of Kaali meteorite to 500+/-700 years BC, so its relatively young. There are several myths and folk songs about the falling sun and the creators of that kind of folklore must have seen the falling of the meteorite with their own eyes!
