The Mudjugh lighthouse The lighthouses have a special importance for seamen. They are the first to meet and the last to see off, save the seamen from troubles and strengthen in the periods of ordeals. The Mudjugh lighthouse started the history of White Sea lighthouses. The brick tower 41 meters of height was built on the South shore of Mudjugh island in the 19th century. The cod-liver oil instead of kerosene had been burnt in 14 oil lamps because it was more economical.
