2019 Ukraine Lighthouse Stamp

On 5 July 2019 Ukrposhta issued a set of four stamps in the form of a souvenir sheet to celebrate “The beauty and grandeur of Ukraine – Donetsk Region”. The stamp at the top right of the sheet depicts Belosaraishiy (Belosaray) Lighthouse. This lighthouse is located on the north shore of the Sea of Azov near the city of Mariupol and is the oldest of the Azov lighthouses and was built in 1836.

2019 Montenegro Lighthouse Stamp

This stamp was issued by Montenegro Post on 25 Nov 2o19 and Features Sveti Nikola (St. Nicholas) Lighthouse. This lighthouse should not be confused with the lighthouse of the same name in neighboring Croatia. The lighthouse is located at the southern end of St. Nicholas Island near the city of Budva. It must not be easy to get to by land as I haven’t found any photos of the light on Google Maps.
