Recommended Posts

Kołobrzeg Lighthouse (Polish: Latarnia Morska Kołobrzeg) - a lighthouse in Kołobrzeg on the Polish coast of the Baltic Sea. The lighthouse in located in Kołobrzeg, West Pomeranian Voivodeship; in Poland.

The lighthouse is located in between the lighthouse in Niechorze (about 34 km to the west) and the lighthouse in Gąski (22 km to the east).


The lighthouse is located at the entrance to the port of Kołobrzeg, it stands on the right bank of the river Parsęta. The history of the Kołobrzeg Lighthouse dates back to 1666. In World War II the lighthouse was blown up by German engineers as it was a good look-out point for the Polish artillery in March 1945. After the Second World War the lighthouse was built at a slightly different location from the original, using the foundations of the fort buildings complex; located close by to the town. The lighthouse is 26 metres tall, with a range of its light glare of 29.6 kilometres. In 1981 the lighthouse was renovated and the 50 cm diameter lens was replaced by a rotating set of halogen bulbs. The wooden staircase was also replaced by a metal one The base of the lighthouse houses a mineral rock museum.

Very impressive! So you made the outer wall round just by flexing the 1x2 bricks? I assume they must flex a little more than standard 1x2s (I've never tried them). Overall the effect is beautiful, and very faithful to the original. Great work!

Thanks all.


I think masonry brick flex same as normal brick. 1x2 log bricks are much easier to bend :)

Great job!

Its always a nice change to see a historic building made rather than more fantasy ones. This would work perfectly as either, I could easily imagine some medieval soldiers guarding it! :laugh:

The base is an excellent choice as well.

By the way, there are quite a few blank lines, if you were to remove them it would make the topic easier to read.

This looks so good, the colour scheme works really well with the building techniques. Very impressive.
