Lighthouse identification / Re: what Russia lighthouse ?

(1)  Tricky one. This is very typical light construction in Russia. Need at least name of the area to identify as there are hundreds of such lights i guess.
(2) Dagestan, Makhachkala - 150 y.o. lighthouse in Caspian sea.

General Discussion / Re: What is the northernmost lighthouse in the world?

Hey! Thanks for interesting question. I've removed another same topic just not to duplicate them.
I dig the database a bit
Norway claims Slettnes lighthouse as the northern one (71°05′22″N)
https://www.lightphotos.net/photos/displayimage.php?pid=28037&
But actually in Russia many lights are located much more to North. Most of them are wooden structures like this
https://www.lightphotos.net/photos/displayimage.php?pid=20878
But some of them are concrete structures:
Vil'kitskiy lighthouse (73 30.8787 N)
https://www.lightphotos.net/photos/displayimage.php?pid=11680
and even far to North Belukha island lighthouse (76 2.9680 N)
https://www.lightphotos.net/photos/displayimage.php?pid=13215
https://www.lightphotos.net/photos/displayimage.php?pid=13214
There is very limited information about northern lighhtouses of Russia, but so far i didn't find any other classic lighthouse beyond this latitude.

General Discussion / What is the northernmost lighthouse in the world?

It sounds like very simple question, but unfortunately google didn't help me to find an answer. I hope members of the respected Lighthouses socoety can help/
I am interested in classical (tower) type lighthouse made of bricks or/and concrete. It doesn't matter active or abandoned structure.

What is the northernmost lighthouse in the world?

Thanks ;)
