For centuries the lighthouses at Cape Kolka (Domesnes) in northeast Latvia were all important guides for the ships sailing between Western European ports and the Riga port. A newest lighthouse in Kolka (northeast Latvia) was erected in 1884 on an artificially built island in deep water outside the sandbanks and shallows of Cape Kolka. It is still fully functioning automatic lighthouse which guides the ships and welcomes curious tourists.
