As I mentioned in an earlier post about the Fårö lighthouse, I wished it was opened for the public. Well, finally they opened up at the special event of Fårö natta September 2009.

Despite the fact that this is a very small island, there were a long line with other equally curious people waiting to get a look from the inside and to get up the 24 meter in the top of the lighthouse of course. Many of the visitors also comes from Gotland island.

As you can see the lighthouse (international lighthouse number C 7162) from 1847 is quite small and the view from up there shows mostly the shore of the Baltic Sea and the forest surrounding it.

    I used to collect vintage lighthouse postcards – I stopped because I kept buying duplicates – but I had never seen this one. I read your post on the movie The Girl with the Golden Tattoo. We did not see it yet – I usually don’t like to watch violent movies and I heard it was a bit violent. The books by Stieg Larsson are very popular here – I’ll place them on my reading list – but I have so many books to read already. We saw The Artist with the French actors Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo and we liked it a lot. We also saw The Descendants filmed in Hawaii – now I am returning to my books on Hawaii’s history – I’ll have to finish my posts on Hawaii sometime.

    Since I am such a fan of lighthouses, I’d definitely want to see this one!
