Adziogol Lighthouse (Ukrainian: Аджигольський маяк; Russian: Аджигольский маяк), also known as Stanislav-Adzhyhol Lighthouse or Stanislav Range Rear Light, is one of two vertical lattice hyperboloid structures of steel bars, serving as active lighthouses in Dnieper Estuary, Ukraine. It is located about 30 kilometres (19 mi) west from Kherson city. 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 within the combined Dnieper-Bug Estuary which extends eastward into Dnieper Estuary, a part of Dnieper River delta, about 2.5 kilometres (1.6 mi) north of Rybalche village (Hola Prystan Raion) and south of the Cape of Adzhyhol. Its name Adzhyhol derives from a cape with similar name located in the close vicinity. Together with Stanislav Range Front Light (Small Adzhyhol Lighthouse) it serves as a range light, guiding ships entering the Dnieper River or the Southern Buh river within a vast Dnieper-Bug Estuary.
The site of the tower is accessible only by boat. The site is open to the public but the tower is closed.
