Tahkuna Lighthouse

The Tahkuna Lighthouse, situated on the north end of Hiiumaa, is a cast iron lighthouse which underwent construction in 1873. Assembled of cast iron parts, utilizing the so-called Gordon system, it was created with prefabricated details, that were easy to transport. Making this tall tower rather easy to build.

Did you know...?: The lighthouse was bought from the world exhibition of Paris in 1871 by Czaric Russia, and is Estonia's tallest lighthouse - 42.7 m above sea level.
