Lighthouse in Sopot - the navigation facility on the Polish Baltic coast, located in Sopot. Built in 1903-4 as a part of Balneological Institute. Since reducing the extent of the light to 7 nautical miles (13 km; 8 mi),[2] according to existing criteria in that matter, it is no longer formally a lighthouse, but still is called so. It is open to visitors.[3]
