Interesting Facts/Records (in own words):
The original (1885) lighthouse here was damaged in World War I and was demolished in 1932. Its successor was destroyed during World War II and was replaced by a temporary wooden tower until the present structure was built in 1955.
It is the tallest lighthouse in the three Baltic republics.
