Osinovetskiy Light

Osinovetsky Light (Russian: Осиновецкий маяк) is an active lighthouse in Lake Ladoga, in Leningrad Oblast, Russia. It is located on a headland near the southwestern corner of the lake near Kokorevo. The light marks the west side of the entrance to the southernmost bay of the lake, leading to the Neva entrance.

At a height of 230 feet (70 m) it is the eighth tallest "traditional lighthouse" in the world. It is a slightly shorter twin of Storozhenskiy Light.

The lighthouse has served as an important landmark in the Road of Life during the Siege of Leningrad (September 8, 1941 to January 27, 1944).

As of 2007, the lightkeeper is Sergey Shulyatev, the oldest lighthouse keeper in Russia. He serves in this position since 1987.
