Olen aina rakastanut majakoita. Miksen siis kuvaisi niitä? * I´ve always loved lighthouses. So, why shouldn´t I take photos of them?

Lighthouse 1942 (modern station established 1827). Active; focal plane 41 m; white light, 5 s on, 5 s off. 40 m octagonal tower with lantern and gallery, painted red. This lighthouse marks the end of the Hel peninsula (Mierzeja Helska), a crucial point of reference for ships entering the Gulf of Gdańsk (Zatoka Gdańska). Lights were displayed in this area in the 17th century, including lights in a church tower as early as the 16th century. Lighthouses were buolt nearby in 1670 and 1790. Lighthouse was blown up by Polish forces in September 1939, at the start of World War II. In 1989 the tower was equipped with a radar antenna atop the lantern, and now the gallery is crowded with communications equipment. Located at the end of highway 216, about 72 km southeast of Władysławowo.
