Vormsi is located between Hiiumaa Island and the mainland.
Covering 93 square kilometers it’s Estonia`s fourth largest island.
Vormsi’s coastal Swedish history is witnessed by the St Olav’s church and wheel-crosses in the Cemeteries as well as foreign-sounding place names. Vormsi’s name is of Scandinavian origin. It is believed that the island was named by an Icelandic Viking Orm (in Estonian: Madu, in English: Snake). Swedes have always called the island Ormsö, after Orm the pirate.
