About Kihnu Lighthouse

Kihnu lighthouse is located on the Pitkänä Cape at the southern tip of Kihnu island. The lighthouse assembled from cast iron details ordered from the Porter & Co factory in England in 1863 was quite innovative for its time in terms of construction and material. The 28-metre white conical cast iron lighthouse with a green lantern room and cupola roof was finished in 1864 and started working for the following year's navigation season. The Kihnu lighthouse was characterised by a "light illuminating for 18 seconds every half a minute (period 48 seconds) with a sight distance reaching 11 miles across the horizon".
