Kaali Meteorite Crater, Saaremaa

3.8
#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.

  • Check this huge crater. It is easy to find and also has a nice place to drink coffee. You could buy some nice things made from dolomites here.  more »
  • Although it is not very large, the meteorite crater, filled to form a pond, and perfectly round, is very impressive with its raised border.
