Tajerske sestrice - Lighthouse on Kornati Archipelago

/sestrice stands for sisters/
Lighthouse is located in the south of the Kornati archipelago. Two small islands, 15 nautical miles far from Zadar protrude on the west. Building complex is situated in the middle of the century old pine woods on Sestrica Vela ( Big Sister ). These woods are ornithological paradise. Diverse birds rest here following their migration course.
Covered bridge connects lightmans building with the tower. Tower is 47 meters tall structure striped in red and white. Lightmans building is utilitarian space of noticable size. Whole complex is encircled with number of terraces. From there one can catch glimpse of cliffs on Dugi Otok ( Long Island ) in different lights and shades.
