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

• The lighthouse was bought from the world exhibition of Paris in 1871 by Czarist Russia

• It is Estonia's tallest lighthouse - 42.7 m above sea level
