Suur Toll and Piret, Kuressaare
(3.8/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange to visit Suur Toll and Piret and other attractions in Saaremaa using our Saaremaa travel itinerary maker.

  • The monument is fun because it is based on an old saga of Saaremaa and it stands outside the SPA hotel with many guests and often becomes avfotograferat. I myself have stayed at Mere SPA and every time I see the monument I smile!

  • If you just like to look at those "big guys", nothing is clear. Some fat guy, and yes even naked with naked aunt bear boat with herring in the hotel. Why?))) but! After reading the story, you start to look at them differently. Man-Tyll', aunt-Piret, husband and wife, Giants. Protect the inhabitants of the island against any harm and cared about them. Interesting Istria.

  • If you visit eh just the Castle castle, you can see also this statue. But does not have one, because it really is nothing special.
