Kołobrzeg Lighthouse

In our live broadcast you can see the high (26 m) famous lighthouse of the Polish city of Kolobrzeg. It is located near the Baltic Sea. For the first time the lighthouse of Kołobrzeg, which is perfectly visible in our webcam, appeared in 1666. After 200 years, it was replaced by another one. At that time, it was an oil lamp with a Frenkel lens, hanging at a height of 8 m above sea level. The range of the lighthouse covered approximately 6 nautical miles. For the functioning of such a lighthouse, 77 liters of fuel were needed annually. In 1909 a lantern appeared, suspended on 25 meters, working on gas.

At the end of the Second World War, the lighthouse was blown up, so the lighthouse was built it again. From 1979 to 1981, the lighthouse of Kołobrzeg was overhauled.


Now Kołobrzeg Lighthouse, perfectly demonstrated in our online camera, is a red brick circle tower. A lantern is suspended on eight columns. The bright beam of the lighthouse gives light at 2 seconds intervals to a distance of 16 nautical miles.

Interestingly, the Poland post office in 2007 released a stamp with the image of the Kołobrzeg lighthouse, which you see online. Lighthouse is very popular tourist attraction. Inside there is an interesting gallery.
