Käsmu's field of boulders

Hidden away amongst the trees towards one end of the village of Käsmu is Estonia's biggest field of boulders: massive stones, the biggest standing 4.8 metres high and measuring 14.7 metres around (and known as 'The Hermit'). The boulders were deposited here as the Finnish and Swedish continental ice shelf retreated around 10,000 years ago. Today the field can be viewed from the Käsmu nature and cultural history trail.
