Being an ancient maritime nation, Estonian coasts are dotted with historical lighthouses that continue to top world listings for most spectacular architecture.

The oldest lighthouses in Estonia have stood strong and guided seafarers of all nations since the 16th century. A vast amount of dedication and craftsmanship has been invested in these architectural monuments, with Gustav Eiffel himself rumoured to have been involved in the construction of the 19th-century lighthouse located on the small island of Ruhnu.
