The two Taevaskoda oucrops, on the banks of the ancient valley of the Ahja River, are one of the most frequently visited sites in southern Estonia. The sandstone outcrops and ancient river form the most beautiful part of the Ahja River Landscape Reserve. Legends speak of caves and secret passageways and of demons and a mermaid with a golden comb. A walk from Saesaare dam to the outcrop at Little (Väike) Taevaskoda, spring Emaläte , cave Neitsikoobas and the outcrop at Big (Suur) Taevaskoda, which rises 22.5 metres above the river, is worth undertaking regardless of the season. The beautiful and exciting natural setting attracts hikers – it is a place that every Estonian visits at least once in their life!
