Prišnjak, Croatia

An amazing view dear Agi surprised me with
And to be honest, this was the first time I heard about Prišnjak...*blush*...
The lighthouse Prišnjak is situated in the isle of Prišnjak. It was built in 1886 so the vessels would navigate more easily through the Murter archipelago during the night. The isle has dry stone wall all over the surface. Some wild figs, pines and some low bushes can be found there. By boat you can cruise around nearby isles. The lighthouse is located six NM away from the National Park Kornati. Lighthouse building is made of stone and it is only 15 metres from the sea. There is a big terrace with the fireplace that can be used as barbeque and a small mooring place for boats. Prišnjak is one of the lighthouses without a Keeper and is completely automated. Isolation is guaranteed since you probably will not come across a straying tourist here.... .
Since the isle has very high temperature values you can swim there until November.

the stamp itself is also showing a lighthouse, coming from a set of 3 issued in 2009. Here you can see the Stražica lighthouse.
Hvala ti puuuuuunoooo Agi!!!
