Tahkuna Lighthouse is situated on the north end of Hiiumaa. The construction of the cast iron lighthouse began in 1873. The lighthouse is assembled of cast iron parts of so-called Gordon system. System is based on prefabricated details, that are easy to transport. That's the reason why this high tower was rather easy to build.
Interesting to know:
• Czaric Russia bought the lighthouse from the world exhibition of Paris in 1871.
• It's the highest lighthouse in Estonia - 42,7 m above the sea level.
