Lighthouses of Serbia

The Republic of Serbia is the largest of the nations remaining from the former Yugoslav federation. Serbia has no coastline, but it has several historic lighthouses located on the Dunav (Danube) River. Thanks to Michel Forand for drawing my attention to the restoration of these lighthouses.

ARLHS numbers are from the ARLHS World List of Lights.

Reke Tisza (Tisza River, Titel)
1898 or earlier. Inactive(?). Approx. 8 m (26 ft) round strongly conical tower with gallery. Lighthouse painted with red, blue, white, and black horizontal bands. Daniel Szávoszt-Vass has a photo and a historic photo (first lighthouse on the page), a 2007 view from the river is available, and Bing has a satellite view. This historic lighthouse marked the confluence of Tisza River with the Danube, an important river junction in Vojvodina province. The principal mouth of the Tisza has since moved a short distance east. The lighthouse was recently restored and painted in the colors of the Serbian flag. Located on the north bank of the Danube across from the village of Stari Slankamen, about 50 km (30 mi) downstream from Novi Sad. Accessible only by boat. Site open, tower closed.
