Estonia’s most unique lake

About 18km from Kuressaare along the Valjala-Kuressaare road is the 100m wide meteorite crater lake. The crater was formed by a meteorite about 2700 years ago and is one of the largest in Europe. According to Scandinavian mythology, the area is known as “the sun’s grave.” It was said that the sun had chosen to be buried there and thus Estonians are considered to be blessed people. Close to the crater is also a museum, shop, and tavern.
