Lighthouse Blå Jungfrun Östra was originally located on the island and national park Blå Jungfrun in the Baltic Sea about 10 nautical miles outside Oskarshamn. After being deactivated by the Swedish maritime authorities, Sjöfartsverket, in 2002, the lighthouse was disassembled and moved into the city of Oskarshamn. It now serves as an attraction and a landmark on street Södra Långgatan in Oskarshamn.
