Somewhere between two and nine millennia ago, a piece of an enormous asteroid hit the earth and created Kaali Meteorite Crater, which you can still see today. Surrounded by thick forest, this gaping hole in the earth is filled with water, with depths ranging from 1 to 6 m (3 to 20 ft), depending on the amount of rainfall. Walk down a small flight of stairs to the edge of the crater to admire its nearly flawless circular shape, keeping in mind that this uncommon lake was formed by an impact of a 1,000,000 kg (1,000 ton) space rock.

  • Definitely a must visit place when driving by. The crater has some sort of sacred place atmosphere that is wort experiencing when visiting Saaremaa. 
  • As the załączonyn image is there a hole in the ground as opposed to those from Norway is a crater after a meteorite

  • An interesting target, but maybe a little too much acclaimed in the brochures. Seats could be a bit of a tidy up, during our stay was quite roskaista.
