Adziogol Lighthouse

Adziogol Lighthouse (Ukrainian: Аджигольський маяк; Russian: Аджигольский маяк), also known as Stanislav Range Rear Light, is a vertical lattice hyperboloid structure of steel bars, serving as an active lighthouse, about 30 kilometres (19 mi) from Kherson, Ukraine. At a height of 211 feet (64 m) it is the sixteenth tallest "traditional lighthouse" in the world as well as the tallest in Ukraine.


It is located on a concrete pier on a tiny islet off the mouth of the Dnieper River, about 2.5 kilometres (1.6 mi) north of Rybalce. Together with Stanislav Range Front Light it serves as a range light, guiding ships entering the Dnieper River.


The lighthouse was designed in 1910 and built in 1911 by Vladimir Shukhov. The 1-story keeper's house is built within the base.


The site of the tower is accessible only by boat. The site is open to the public but the tower is closed.
