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.

We were cycling, and were drawn to Kaali because of the unique event of a large meteor impact. The signs are well designed, provide lots of geological information, and include English explanations. Adjacent is a large crafts display/shop that specializes in laces made by weavers on Saaremaa; many very unusual and comparatively inexpensive.

A short walk from the road is this remarkable crater, which caused scientific discussion for more than a century. Definitely worth a walk around. Local craft shop has some surprisingly good stuff.

A huge crater that teared deep in the earth approximately 4000 years ago. It is easy to find and close to the main road.
There are stairways and ladders so you can explore. It looks much more impressive in real life compared to the pictures.

I am so glad we visited this crater, really fascinating! About 4,000 years old, only proven to be a meteor crater in the past 70 years or so.
