Lighthouse in Russia

The website, English Russia has a fantastic photo collection of a series of abandoned lighthouses that dot along the northern coast of Russia.

What makes these lighthouses unique is not the fact that they are very old, extremely remote, abandoned, falling apart, looted or just plain scary looking, it's that they were powered by a small atomic energy powerplant which could keep them going completely automated for years on end.
