The lighthouse in Sopot is a navigation facility on the Polish Baltic coast, located in Sopot, built in 1903–04 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]
