Suur Munamägi (in translation "Big Egg Mountain") is the highest peak in Estonia (and the Baltic states), reaching 318 metres (1,043 ft) above sea level. It is located near the village of Haanja, in Võru County in the south-eastern corner of Estonia, close to the borders of both Latvia and Russia.
The new tower was built of ferroconcrete in 1939. The tower was made 25.7 metres (84 ft) high. It was built of 36 000 bricks and 80 tons of cement which all were carried up to the mountain. The tower was finished in the same year in June but the ceremonial opening was cancelled because of World War II. The tower was not seriously harmed in war and the repair was made in 1955.
2018-08-20 After we visited Gaiziņkalns we continued driving to Estonia. It took us some hours of driving until we reached the parking close to Suur Munamägi. From the parking lot it is a few meters to the highest point. Since the tower was open we chose to climb the stairs as well. Just as a bonus, since I only count the natural highest point. Nothing built by the human is counted in my project.
