The lighthouse in Jarosławiec is the oldest lighthouse in Poland. Its construction began in 1835 however the lighthouse was not successful due to a number of physical factors. The lighthouse was built about 400 metres from the coast - this proved to be too low to be effective for navigation. Its light was not very visible because it was obscured by trees and it was soon decided to build a new tower closer to the beach. The new lighthouse began operating in 1838. Its light source was fifteen lamps powered by rapeseed oil. This unusual form of lighting was used for a long time till it was replaced at the beginning of the 20th century with electric lighting.

  • It is worth to watch Jarosławiec from the Lighthouse terrace. Impressive view of the open sea and Lake Wicko. Lighthouse built in 1832 year and in great condition. It is worth to overcome these 122 degrees:)
