Lighthouses of Russia

Lighthouses of Russia


The lighthouses of Russia have until now attracted only a little interest from the the rest of Europe. This site aims to address this deficiency. [Some links to other sites with information about Russian lighthouses and lightships are given on the Links Page.]

In 2018, we finally made contact with some friends who are helping us in this task. Thus, these pages will hopefully become more numerous in the coming months. The editor welcomes contributions from anyone who wishes to add material.

The most recent information concerns the St. Petersburg Lighthouse Museum, which is open to visitors and welcomes you all to its doors.

Acknowledgement: These pages have been created with the help of journalist Pasha Nikiforov, whose photographs grace the pages of the section entitled Gulf of Finland. Pasha has also made an excellent film about Russian lighthouses in the Gulf of Finland.
