Latvia Lighthouse FDC

Latvia FDC
Name: Akmeņraga Lighthouse
Date of Issue: 10 May 2008

Akmeņraga or Akmeņrags (Stone Cape) lighthouse is a 35 m tall lighthouse. It is located on a cape about 35km north of Liepāja. The first lighthouse on this location was built in 1884, then destroyed during WWI and rebuilt in 1921.

Comment: It is very difficult to find detailed information of this lighthouse. What a pity! Latvia Post doesn't supply the official information on its website. So I must search the detailed information by myself each time. To compare with its Baltic brothers, it should be improved.
