Kihnu lighthouse

Pitkänä lauter, Rootsiküla, Kihnu vald, Pärnu maakond


Kihnu lighthouse is situated on the southernmost tip of Pitkänä peninsula. It was brought here in 1864 from England, dismounted, and was reassembled on site. It is one of four cast iron lighthouses that remain standing on our shores. The tower is white, conical in shape and equipped with a lamp locker and balcony. The height of the light from sea level is 29 m.
The tower was renovated on 2018.

Did you know...? The lighthouse was built at the same time as those of Vormsi and Virtsu and is externally similar to them.

Classic iron lighthouse, beautiful view

Nice old iron lighthouse, view from above is spectacular since Kihnu is rather flat island. It was made by the Tividale Company from Tipton, Staffordshire, Great Britain and built at the southern tip...

Старый и красивый маяк на мысе

Летом можно организовать посещение маяка, в марте можно посмотреть его снаружи. Он высокий, белоснежный и прекрасно смотрится на берегу. В низкий сезон маяк, сувенирная лавка и музей закрыты.
