Saaremaa is the 1,032 square mile island in the Baltic Sea just south of Hiiumaa island, a part of the West Estonian Archipelago. It is the largest island in Estonia. Saaremaa has been inhabited from at least 5,000 years BCE, and it has a turbulent history in both a natural and human sense. The meteorite Kaali fell on the island over 4,000 years ago, creating a massive crater, and the area has seen numerous invaders, Vikings being the most frequent. Today, the island is a very popular holiday destination. People from all over Estonia come for the island’s lovely, almost deserted beaches, rich folklore, and fabulous spa retreats. Quaint fishing villages, traditional Estonian cottages, an enormous castle in the capital Kuressaare, picturesque windmills, and diverse wildlife make Saaremaa a wonderful place to explore.
