Lighthouse of the Week, Jan. 29-Feb. 4, 2017: Savudrija, Croatia

This Lighthouse of the Week, Savudrija, is the oldest lighthouse in Croatia.  It's also available for rent!

According to The Lighthouse Directory:
"Active; focal plane 36 m (118 ft); three white flashes every 15 s. 29 m (95 ft) round cylindrical stone tower with lantern and double gallery, rising from a 1- and 2-story keeper's complex. Fog siren (two blasts every 42 s). The lighthouse is unpainted cream-colored stone; the lantern is white with a gray metallic roof."
and also:
"The light marks the southern entrance to the Gulf of Trieste. The 2-story principal keeper's house has two large apartments available for vacation rental."

Well, would you like to vacation there? You'll have to judge from the pictures.

By the way, it's also apparently called "The Lighthouse of Love". More research required to see how romantically connected the place really is.
