At 43 meters, the Tahkuna peninsula lighthouse is the tallest cast-iron tower in Estonia. Construction was started in 1873 and completed in 1875.
Tahkuna peninsula, on the north coast of Hiiumaa, is also the closest point in Estonia to where the Estonia ferry sank in 1994. A memorial to the victims has been placed here.
