September is a month when the trees are heavy with apples and you just can’t stop wondering what to do with the fruits. Saaremaa Food Festival is giving us all a chance to make one lovely Sunday (15th of September) a very exciting day.

We invite all of you along with your families, friends, acquaintances, and guests, to participate in the Apple Cafés’ Day on a lovely Sunday in Kuressaare!

On Sunday, 9th of September, the city will be vivacious, because in different gardens, yards and other venues there will be opened a lot of Apple Cafés. Every café has something exciting and unique to just this place and they invite all of you to come and visit. All this gives more than enough reason to discover the city in quite a different Sunday excursion.

The Apple Cafés are looking forward to see you at 12:00 and they stay open until 18:00. You may find some variances in opening times when you look below at the list of our exciting cafés along with their locations and descriptions.

The map with the cafés’ locations can be printed in future  from this web-page, you can also find it from the county newspapers , from from the cafés or print from homepage.

The photos of the event will be posted on the Facebook Saaremaa Toidufestival

The Apple Cafés in Kuressaare on the 15th of September at 12:00-18.00

Apple cafe Bellingshauseni Thules

Location: Uus 20, Kuressaare

In cooperation with the local Mercurial Society we will open the charitable cofee in front of Thule Koda.

All the income will be donated for the monument of Bellingshausen.

In 2020, Antarctica will have been discovered 200 years ago. Islanders and all the people of Estonia have a reason to be particularly proud of it. Namely, a man born and raised in Saaremaa, Admiral Fabian Gottlieb Benjamin von Bellingshausen (20.09.1778 – 25.01.1852) led the expedition in Antarctic waters, and is the first person ever to see the Antarctic continent on 28 January in 1820.

We would like to associate Admiral Bellingshausen’s story with Estonians and, above all, with the islanders closer than it has been done so far, and to establish a monument in Kuressaare in honour of a world famous islander and Antarctic explorer as well as the 200 anniversary of the discovery of Antarctica. The monument would be an important tourist attraction in Saaremaa and Kuressaare.

The author of the competitively selected winning work FAST ICE in the architectural competition is Gunnar Vares. Restrained modern design with black and gray granite and the text on a copper engraving in the centre of the monument. The winning work is a planar circular image of two limestone tiles, where two stone blocks arise from the base, the joints of which form a seating surface, and there is a metal disc in the middle of the image depicting the southern pole of the globe and marked by Bellingshausen’s exploration trips. It is well suited to the seaside recreation area next to Kuressaare Episcopal Castle overlooking the sea.
