Russia Post released a set of 2 stamp on Light house Tarkhankut and Chersonesus with maps appropriating to their location, and the mariner's cards on 29th September 2016.

The Tarkhankut and the Chersonesus Lighthouses is located on the Black Sea coast of the Republic of Crimea. They are called “twin-brothers” because they both were built in 1816 by one and the same design and they were put into service in June 1817 after installation of parabolic reflectors that were delivered from St. Petersburg.
