Lighthouses are the most romantic places on earth. Today, we want to tell you about the lighthouse of Apsheronsk, one of the oldest lighthouses of the Caspian Sea, and a lighthouse located in the city of Lankaran which used to be a jail.

The lighthouse was built in 1859 and became the largest lighthouse in the area. To get to the top of this 25-meter tower, you’ll have to travel 102 steps of its staircase.
At first, the lighthouse was lit with a kerosine lamp, but in 1956 it was replaced with an electric 500 W one.
