Kiipsaare Lighthouse Featured on Estonian Stamp

First Day of Issue: January 31, 2013 - Estonia

Estonia has issued a new postage stamp celebrating the 80th anniversary of the Kiipsaare Lighthouse.

Kiipsaare Lighthouse is located on the Harilaid peninsula on the northwest coast of the island of Saaremaa in Estonia.

The lighthouse was built at the tip of the peninsula, then on land, in 1933. Today rising seas has resulted in the lighthouse now being a few meters from shore.
