The lighthouse in Sopot is a rebuilt chimney of the Balneological Institute, which houses automatic navigation lights that shine at a distance of 17 nautical miles. A tower 30 m high. It was built in 1903 - 1904 on the site of a former gas plant. New buildings performed their healing functions until the end of World War II. It was then that the object became the property of the city and served as a city bath. In the 50s, the building was transferred to the rheumatology hospital, of which it is still a part. The smokestack did not fit into the landscape of the resort, the boiler room was rebuilt, which since then began to run on liquid fuel, and the unfortunate pipe was built up and covered with a roof. A lantern was installed on the tower that appeared, which was the beginning of the lighthouse. Currently, the object is not used as a lighthouse, but its name remains.

Very cute with a nice view :) I counted 124 steps!
Nice view even though it’s not very high. Can recommend
Nice view of the area through this historical Light house. They even have some chairs at the top to sit and catch the breath after climbing all those stairs.
Quite small and old lighthouse of short height, lesser steps. Still we get breathtaking view of the sea and whole Sopot city. Entry fee is bit less and nominal, so can experience it once. We had metropolia pass which covered this attraction anyway. I.. Read more »t's open till 9 PM during summers, so can go there at the end of the day.
Way up easier then expected. Friendly staff at the entrance. Beautiful views. And the certificate of course!
I expected this lighthouse to be more bright from the distance, but it isn't? Could someone explain me how does it work?
It is one of those landmarks that you have to visit when in Sopot. The lighthouse offers a really nice view on the promenade and the pier. When it is clear outside, you can see Hel Peninsula. It is pretty small going up the stairs so wait out large c.. Read more »rowds. It is also worth seeing the view during the night. On the way out, every visitor gets an attendance certificate as a souvenir.
The Lighthouse with an amazing view! I highly recommend this observation deck. It's not so high but still there are so many things to see from there: pier, square, both sides of the coast from Gdansk to Clif Orlowo, and more. As a bonus you will..

This lighthouse was on our todo list still, so we paid the friendly caretaker six zlotych, climbed the hundred forty or so steps to the top for a 360 degree view of Sopot and surroundings. Made some nice pics of the old casino, the pier and the water.. Read more »front. Got a quaint certificate testifying to our 40 meter climb. Nice visit.
Must visit it, views worth climbing.
Very nice view!
Zero. Should be zero star... Not worth the price, interesting view on the moló, but the window are so dirty you can't take a proper picture. To be avoided.
Good views of Sopot town, the beaches, the sea and the pier. I wish it was taller though.
The entrance is somewhat discreet and unassuming.
Better at night!
Man, you put a smile on my face after receiving that fancy centificate of a visit. This is exactly the type of things you do on a sucessful point of interest. Great! The entry is so cheap I would rise it to double. View is phenomenal, all around the .. Read more »beach. I recommend visitng in the sunset. And if you can, buy some souvenirs at the entrance, the staff deserves it! Well done!
It is 136 steps to the top. A bit disappointing because you have to take pictures through the window glass.
Entrance fee is 6zt for adults.
Beautiful lighthouse next to famous Sopot Pier.
The latarnia was supposed to be open until 20:00 today, arrived just before 19:00 and the guy was closing up. Quite rude, said it was 'because of the weather', although it's a beautiful clear sky tonight. He seemed to be in a rush, m.. Read more »aybe he had better things to do....
