Murmansk Memorial Lighthouse

Murmansk Memorial Lighthouse
Kola Bay, Barents Sea
Lighthouses of Russia, No 8

Murmansk Memorial Date unknown. Approx. 28 m (92 ft) hexagonal cylindrical tower with lantern and two galleries, painted with red and white horizntal bands. Anastasia Kharkacheva has a fine photo, Austin Charron has also posted a good photo, and Google has a satellite view. This lighthouse is a memorial to seamen lost at sea in the Arctic. Located high on a hill above the city, it has no navigational value, but it deserves special mention as the only lighthouse in the Murmansk area readily accessible to tourists. Site open, tower status unknown but probably open. – Lighthouse Directory
