 “The lighthouse was meant to be the fulfilment of my dreams, but it became my life’s project”,  

 laughs Jacek Michalak.

One of the most attractive lighthouses of Northern Europe. From the first it served a threefold purpose: as a marine lighthouse, as a tower for the harbour pilots and as the only base on the coast of Poland for a time ball.

Inside you can enjoy the beautifully preserved historical optical devices and the wonderful lighthouse exhibition. The view from the top of the lighthouse over the port of Gdańsk, Westerplatte and the whole of the Bay of Gdańsk as far as Gdynia and Hel is also a delight.

It is one of the magical places of Gdańsk which absolutely must be visited!
