Birling Gap and the Seven Sisters

The hills and dips of the chalk cliffs between Cuckmere Haven and Birling Gap all have names. The original Seven Sisters now count as eight due to erosion dividing two of the hills.

The view of the white cliffs just makes you feel so amazed!

There is also a lighthouse built on the hill, the light from which first shone on the 11 October 1834.

Beachy Head

The White Chalk Cliffs at Beachy Head were formed between 65 and 100 million years ago when the land was completely covered by the sea.

The light from the Beachy Head Lighthouse first shone on the 2nd October 1902.

Pevensey Bay

Pevensey Bay is a beautiful and cozy old fishing village founded in 1600 as Wallsend, the end of the sea wall from Eastbourne.

Pevensey castle

Pevensey Castle has a history stretching back over 1700 years, beginning in the 4th century as one of the strongest Roman Saxon Shore forts, two-third of whose towered walls still stand. Its impressive ruins stand on what was once a peninsula surrounded by sea and salt marsh projecting from the mainland of the Sussex coast.

Church of St. Seraphim of Sarov

The Orthodox Church of St. Seraphim of Sarov in Svetlogorsk, in the time of East Prussia, was a Lutheran Church. The Church was built in 1903 in the Eastern part of Rauschen. It is located on a hill in a small pine park.

The House-museum of Herman Brachert

The House-museum of Herman Brachert was opened in 1993 in the country house of the Bracherts family in Svetlogorsk. This is the only museum dedicated to the life and work of the wonderful German sculptor. The museum has a total of 738 exhibits – documents, letters and photographs from the sculptor’s family archive. But the pearl of the collection are the original works of the master.

The Water tower was built in 1907-1908 in Rauschen. The 25-meter building was designed in the German national romanticism style. Now this is a symbol of Svetlogorsk.
