Nicodemus Lighthouse(Nikodimsky Mayak). One of the most remote and gloomiest places of the Kola Peninsula. Some people seek to get there nonetheless. Perhaps they are looking for exotic or rare shots or want to understand the “mysterious Russian soul”. Ilya Zheltyakov, traveler and filmmaker making a documentary about Nikodimsky lighthouse
It is a pyramid made of beams and boards, 40m (120ft) high, with stairs inside, a huge lamp with a small light at the top. Raisa and her husband look after the lighthouse. They started this job recently, after the previous light-keeper shot himself, last summer, because of unhappy love affair on the side, and left a widow and two children behind.
