YOU ARE INVITED TO VISIT THE LIGHTHOUSE
The lighthouse at Nowy Port is one of the most attractive marine lighthouses in Northern Europe (geographical location 54°24’28”N, 18°39’50”E). It measures 27 metres in height, was built in 1893 and came into operation in 1894. Legend has it that it is a twin of the lighthouse in Cleveland, Ohio, the most beautiful of marine lighthouses in America. It was the first lighthouse on the Baltic to use electric light.
WHEN ON A VISIT TO THE LIGHTHOUSE YOU MAY SEE THE FOLLOWING:
– the interior with beautifully preserved historical optical devices
– the marvellous view from the top of the building over the port of Gdańsk, Westerplatte and the entire Bay of Gdańsk as far as Gdynia and Hel
