This hollow, now grown full of plants, was formed 6600 years ago when a meteorite hurtled down to a forest in South Estonia called Ilumetsa.The meteorite crater’s name is Põrguhaud – Hell’s Grave in English – and has its own folklore from ancient Estonians: “It was very dangerous to be near the place during the Midsummer time because it was on fire as the devils were drying gold there. Some, however, were brave enough to go and look among the trees despite the danger. If someone said the devil’s name around the glow of the fire, he turned into the devil servant itself.”
