A short walk from the road is this remarkable crater, which caused scientific discussion for more than a century. Definitely worth a walk around. Local craft shop has some surprisingly good stuff.

A huge crater that teared deep in the earth approximately 4000 years ago. It is easy to find and close to the main road. There are stairways and ladders so you can explore. It looks much more impressive in real life compared to the pictures.

I am so glad we visited this crater, really fascinating! About 4,000 years old, only proven to be a meteor crater in the past 70 years or so.

Sure, not the largest meteorite crater but very interesting all the same. the information boards were very good and the information was well displayed. If you're in the area, you really should see this!

Worth to see if traveling in Saaremaa island. Unique place. Better than all those old churches around...:)

It was the first time I saw a krater, and this one is in a very beautiful place. Worth the visit if you are doing a tour on the island, that is super beautiful.
