Kaali Meteorite Crater, Saaremaa

3.9
#1 of 13 in Parks in Saare County
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.

  • If you want to understand whether you are young or not - visit 5000years old crater . amazing experience  more »
  • Relax in Kuressaare, decided to visit, just 18 km away and can be reached by bus. Minus that buses run infrequently and do in Kaale especially. So I do not recommend to come here during the winter and without a car. Inspection itself will take minute 10-15 crater, meteorite Museum is small, when the store 15 minutes yet. But between the buses break three hours)) Tavern opened only in the warm season, the winter will only, for groups. In General, for the overall development, worth a visit, taking into account these nuances.

  • This spot is easily accessible by car and by bike. The crater is very good to detect and also pretty neat. To strengthen, there is also a restaurant in the immediate vicinity.

  • It is easy to see where the meterorite hit. You can't help but marvel at the force of the impact. The site is quiet and accessible. The interpretation boards are helpful and informative

  • Interesting place ... Lake in the crater formed after the impact of the meteorite.
