Stawa Młyny beacon in Świnoujście, Poland

Hold your charge, Quixote, the crews aboard the ships that need to dock at the Port of Świnoujście in Poland prefer that the lighthouse is in good working order. When officials were making upgrades to the Baltic Sea port in 1873, they built this lighthouse to look like a windmill. Due to its unusual appearance in contrast to its function, the light, known as Stawa Młyny, is a popular photo-op for locals and visitors alike.

Stawa Młyny – a beacon in the shape of a windmill in Świnoujście, West Pomeranian Voivodeship; in Poland. The beacon acts as a signal for vessels entering the Port of Świnoujście, from the Baltic Sea. The beacon is 10 metres in height; coloured in white with a black colour roof. The beacon was built between 1873-1874 during the modernisation of the ship route into the Port of Świnoujście.
