Odd news about the fire of the Sun falling into a sacred lake spread quickly. It all happened on an island, an island far-far away. Where could it be? When Pytheas from Massalia arrived here 4th century BC, it was clear, this was the island he’d been looking for. He made it to Thule. (inspired by the works of Lennart Meri)

The magic of waves, the spirit of time, the inherited force. Saaremaa, Ultima Thule.
