Storozhensky lighthouse is situated in the south-east of Lake Ladoga in Storozhno village of the Leningrad region. It was built in 1906, they say it's the highest lighthouse in Europe - 71 m high.
To go upstairs on the top of the lighthouse will cost you only 5 USD. It's nothing for such a pleasure.
Someone says here are 400 stairs, others insist on 399 ...
The bulb is ordinary, in fact: 500 watt, halogen
A view from the top at the house of a light-house keeper.
Fresnel lens on the top. Thickness and quality of the glass are impressive.
