Monument Tourist Spot
Look for the statue of Suur Toll and Piret--great heroes of Estonian mythology--carrying a boat loaded with fish. According to legend, Suur was a gentle giant who protected his people by tossing enormous rocks at enemies. Piret, his wife, always made sure his basic needs were fulfilled--the cabbage soup was on the table, the sauna was heated, and there was enough beer for the day. You can take a Suur Toll tour at one of the hotels, which involves all the giant's favorites--cabbage soup, sauna, and a lot of beer.

  • This statue shows a part of the history of Saaremaa. It's worth to enjoy during a walk around the castle to make the detour to the marina to watch.

  • An interesting sculpture, especially if you look at the details. Recommend looking at fish eye expression:) Signature to the sculpture executed in five or six languages, including Russian. The only thing that got me confused, this error in Russian in this signature.

  • It is a bronze statue on the beach near the Castle. Or what it is a statue not been understood is the happy child.

  • Very nice and unusual monument. Thanks to the position close to the water it creates a cool landscape while telling a curious detail of the history of the town :)
  • Good clicks for few photos. Water next to it, near to Kuressaare Castle.
  • Cool monument about the history of the town
  • This sculpture can be defined as "a place where all are photographed". Characters Island epic-Suur Tyll and his wife Piret-made deliberate care. Is a symbol located at the hotel Meri.
