One of the most beautiful lighthouses on the Baltic stands 90 feet tall greeting ships at the entrance of the harbour of Gdansk. On September 1, 1939, at 4:45 a.m. the German army opened fire from the site onto the Polish army across the Vistula River in Westerplatte, marking the start of World War II. Talk about historical significance! Until 1984, it served its duty as a coastal lighthouse, a harbour pilots tower, and a time ball station. Go and admire the unique architecture, but don't forget your camera! The view of Gdansk harbour, Westerplatte, Hel Peninsula, and the entire Bay of Gdansk is truly memorable!
