Kaali Meteorite Crater, Saaremaa

3.0
#3 of 7 in Parks in Saare County
Geologic Formation Mysterious Site
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.

  • Unique in its kind. Must if we go in the corner. Access well-appointed and nature preserved. Only takes no more than an hour in total.

  • A very special destination. There is just nothing amazing. A lot of people, but why? The adjacent poppy fields are pretty.
