Twenty-five kilometers southwest of Hanko, at the entrance of the Gulf of Finland stands Scandinavias tallest lighthouse. Towering 52 meters above the sea, the lighthouse of Bengtskär is the archipelago`s most imposing and magnificient monument. This massive stone structure has witnessed many dramatic events in Finland`s history. For nine decades the lighthouse has provided a safe passage to the thousands of vessels which plie the waters of the Gulf. The island is the most southern inhabited place in Finland. The nearest village, Rosala, is situated 18 kilometers north of Bengtskär.
