Solve tasks to find hidden Geo point coordinates


Panga cliff is the highest Silurian cliff in West Estonia and islands. The Silurian period started 443 million years ago and lasted 27 million years. Escarpment starts from Gotland in Sweden, runs through the Baltic Sea and rises from the sea on the western coast of Saaremaa. The maximum height of the cliff is 21.3 metres and it is 2.5 km long. All cliffs in Saaremaa consist of limestone. The wall reaches straight up from the surrounding beach. It is a part of nature protection area. It is a good place for birdwatching, taking pictures, enjoy the sunset and swing on a big village swing. There is also a dolomite sundial and a sea mark on the cliff.  

At the highest point of the cliff, there is an ancient sacrificial site where people used to worship and sacrifice to the sea. Some say that there had also been some kind of wooden figure at the worshipping place. Legends tell that in ancient times one person was sacrificed every year, later after every seven years an ox, then a cow, then a pig, and finally a sheep was pushed down the cliff. Later, in 19th century, local fishermen poured libations of beer and vodka over the edge of the cliff, especially on Midsummer Eve, to ensure lots of fish during the coming year.
