15 The Highest Lighthouse in Europe?

The Highest Lighthouse in Europe?

Posted on October 5, 2010 by team

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
