Lighthouse of the Week, January 31 - February 6, 2016: Kõpu, Estonia
I wondered to myself, "Does Estonia have lighthouses?" And the answer is, yes, it does. I quickly found the unique-looking Kõpu lighthouse. Here's more about it:
Spotting History: Kõpu lighthouse
- It is one of the oldest lighthouses in the world, having been in continuous use since its completion in 1531.
- Due to its enduring popularity and memorable shape, it is often used as a symbol of Hiiumaa [an island in the Baltic Sea]. A major tourist attraction, the tower has been open for tourists since 1999.
