The 26 and 67 meters high lighthouses were put into operation in 1915 and are used for the purpose specified until now! The lighthouses are located directly on the water area of the Dnieper Estuary.

In spite of the aggressive marine environment, revolution of 1917, German occupation during the Second World War, period after perestroika both lighthouses are in excellent condition and are a model of how monuments of the world culture should be preserved. The lighthouses do not have even a single newly-made part! The Ukrainian cartographers succeeded to do the unbelievable – to preserve the unique monuments of genius Shukhov in their primeval appearance. Such an approach to own history and to monuments of the world cultural heritage is a model to emulate not only for countries of the post-soviet area but also for the majority of developed countries in the West!
