Long Description:

Depicted modern lighthouse, one of the largest lighthouses on Lithuanian seacoast, is hidden among pine trees on Urbas Hill near Nida village at Curonian Spit in Lithuania.

This modern 29.3 m high lighthouse was built in 1953 at the site of older brick lighthouse from 1874, which was badly damaged during WWII. Current reinforced-concrete lighthouse painted in red-white horizontal lines is sending flashlight signals, which are seen 41 km to the sea (22 sea miles). The lenses were made in Iziumi factory in Charkov district (Ukraine). Flesh signals are sent only during the night. The light turns on and off automatically by natural daylight. Radio signals are send all the time. The lighthouse has an autonomic power station. The goal of the Nida Lighthouse is to help sailors orienteering in the Baltic Sea. The flash signs (two short and one long) tell them that there is no seaport here.
