Sopot Lighthouse

Sopot, Poland
3.8 / 6
The lighthouse in Sopot is a rebuilt chimney of the Balneological Institute, which houses automatic navigation lights that shine at a distance of 17 nautical miles. A tower 30 m high. It was built in 1903 - 1904 on the site of a former gas plant. New buildings performed their healing functions until the end of World War II. It was then that the object became the property of the city and served as a city bath. In the 50s, the building was transferred to the rheumatology hospital, of which it is still a part. The smokestack did not fit into the landscape of the resort, the boiler room was rebuilt, which since then began to run on liquid fuel, and the unfortunate pipe was built up and covered with a roof. A lantern was installed on the tower that appeared, which was the beginning of the lighthouse. Currently, the object is not used as a lighthouse, but its name remains.

Good views of Sopot town, the beaches, the sea and the pier. I wish it was taller though. The entrance is somewhat discreet and unassuming.

It is 136 steps to the top. A bit disappointing because you have to take pictures through the window glass. Entrance fee is 6zt for adults.
