Suur Toll and Piret, Kuressaare

4.1
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.

  • In childhood looked sad, heavy and very Kinky cartoon about Tyllja and his wife Piret. Once again reviewed on the island is still weird wink:)) generally folk epics are seldom funny. The monument itself was very hilarious. Located in front of the hotel Meri

  • Well the sculpture is ok, it's nice going with are already in the area. But definitely the view of the sea is worth it.  more »
  • The sculpture of the local heroes of the epic-Tyllju and his wife Piret. This legend is familiar even with Soviet childhood, was a book about Tyllja. A sad story. Sculpture too frankly draws the heroes body without clothes, for me personally it is straining.
