  The Lighthouse

Another maritime feature of the Gdansk cityscape is the lighthouse in the district of New Port. Built in the late 19th century it ranks amount the most beautiful structures of its kind along the Baltic Sea Coast. Also used as a port pilot tower it was equipped with an uncommon instrument – a time sphere. Today the building accommodates a collection of antique optical instruments and an exhibition displays the history of seashore lighthouses.
From the top one can enjoy a magnificent view of the Bay of Gdansk.
