Two Military Lighthouses on Sakhalin will be Repaired and Made Accessible to Tourists

Two military lighthouses on Sakhalin will be repaired and made accessible to tourists. Two military lighthouses - at the Aniva and Zhonkier capes - will become officially open for tourists after overhaul maintenance.

      It was possible to agree on access to light objects with the Minister of Defense of the country Sergey Shoigu.

      A total of 11 lighthouses have been preserved in Sakhalin Oblast, each of them is unique and attractive for tourists. The most famous and most beautiful lighthouse often depicted as the island’s logo is the Aniva lighthouse built by the Japanese on the Sivuchya Rock near the rocky cape of Aniva in the south of Sakhalin in 1939. Its height exceeds 30 m. The lighthouse on Zhonkier Cape (located in the central part of the western coast of Sakhalin) was built in 1897. In addition to its historical value, this lighthouse is also famous for the fact that Anton Chekhov and Valentin Pikul mentioned it in their novels.
