It has been an important navigation base for ships for 75 years. Besides, it's one of the symbols of Vladivostok. When ships enter the port of the city they are guided by two lighthouses - Basargin and Skryplev ones.

The lighthouse was named in the nineteenth century after the cape of Basargin which is the outermost on the peninsular.
