Storozhenskiy Light

Storozhenskiy Light (Russian: Стороженский маяк), also known as Storozhno Light, is an active lighthouse in Lake Ladoga, in the Leningrad Oblast, Russia. It is located on a headland on the eastern side of the lake, separating the Svirsky lip of the lake from the Volkhov Bay, at the village of Storozhno.

At a height of 233 feet (71 m) it is the seventh tallest "traditional lighthouse" in the world, and the fourth tallest stone lighthouse. It is a twin of the slightly shorter Osinovetsky Light.

The site is accessible and the tower is open by arrangement with the keeper.
