In Krynica Morska there is the only operating lighthouse on the Vistula Spit. It is located on the Baltic coast between the Gdańsk Port Północny lighthouse and the Baltiysk lighthouse in Russia.
It was built in 1951 and replaced the earlier lighthouse from the nineteenth century, unfortunately destroyed at the end of World War II. It was built of concrete blocks in the shape of a truncated cone with internal stairs climbing along the walls. In the middle of the lighthouse is empty, so climbing up the stairs we can see the entrance hall located downstairs. The gallery offers an amazing view of the Baltic Sea and the Vistula Lagoon. From the land side, with good visibility, you can see Tolkmicko and Frombork, and even the lights of Hel and Gdańsk.
In the years 1957–1997, the lighthouse also served as a beacon and broadcast signals using the Morse Code. Currently, there is one of eleven shore stations on the Polish coast of the AIS-PL system of the HELCOM project, enabling automatic monitoring of ship traffic in the coastal zone.
The lighthouse is also a tourist attraction of the Vistula Spit and is open to tourists.
