If you like lighthouses and history, then this is a cool spot. With GPS it's easy to find, and it's close to other historical locations. Just across the way is the monument to WW2. For 10zł a person you can go to the top. For...More

I'm a light-house buff and this one is important from a historical point of vue (re: start of WWII) but there isn't much to see and do and it's quite a schlep from downtown Gdandsk

Me and a friend got lost whilst looking for the lighthouse and would recommend getting public transport or renting a car as we came across some scary neighbourhoods. The lighthouse was very pretty and a nice touch to the town. However, do not go out...More
