2016 Estonia Lighthouse Stamp

Since 1996 Eesti Post has issued at least one stamp in the lighthouse and nautical chart series each year. The latest in this series will be issued on 27 Oct 2016 – in just a few days. It features Virtsu Lighthouse. The original lighthouse on this sight was destroyed by Russian forces in 1917 and it’s replacement was subsequently destroyed by retreating German forces in 1944. The current lighthouse was built in 1951. Let’s hope it has a long and useful life.
