“Amazing place and unique place of interest - but not for everyone”

Reviewed 24 May 2014

There is not much chance to see meteorite craters in Europe, so if you are interested in earth or space sciences, this place is a must. Otherwise, skip. There is a small museum (entrance fee is 0.60 EUR) about the discovery, describing the craters and many meteorite fragments are also displayed. Ask for the key in the grocery shop. The biggest crater is a beautiful, calm place with a lake. Just sit down there, and you may get some cosmic feelings :) The other craters are also in walking distance, but some of them is hard to find or reach.

There are direct buses from Kuressaare (25 minutes, <1 EUR) to the site (because it's next to a school.) You can also take some long distance buses stopping at Masa, and walk 15-20 minutes, a taxi (about 15 EUR) or hire a bicycle. We came from Kuressaare by bus and spent at the site about 1.5 hours and took a direct bus back to Kuressaare, but it was not enough. For us, this place was much more interesting than we expected.

I usually like outdoors and nature, but this site felt kind of a disappointment to me. I believe coming during summer would do more justice to this place, but in early march it really felt like a lonely dirt pond covered with ice.

Nice place, but it is only hole in the ground :-) Interesting thing is, how the water level varies depending on the season.

Amazing place in the Kali village - several meteorite craters with huge central one. Amazing place with nice area around. Curious, with enough historical and scientific info on guides. Nice small museum accomplish all that area. One can find there parking, shops, rest area and some cafe.

I was really impressed to find that such places exists and I can visit them.
really recommend for everybody who interests in such things.

Tips: try to find all the craters using the guides and maps given there in the surrounding area in the village. Like a quest for you and you children. We found couple of them and were very satisfied! :)
