Lighthouse and a little church on the rock in Bolshoy Utrish

In this postcard sent to me by Maria, are shown a lighthouse and a little church on the rock in Bolshoy Utrish (Big Utrish), south Russia, on the shore of the Black Sea. Between the seaside village of Bolshoy Utrish and Sukko, a rural locality serving as a resort, sprawls across the Bolshoy Utrish protected area, which stretches for 12km along the coastline and is closed on the north ridge Navagir. Sukko lies in the north of the Abrau Peninsula, in the valley of the small Sukko River, wedged between the westernmost spurs of the Caucasus Mountains, otherwise known as the Markotkh. 

The lighthouse, is located on an island and appears to be abandoned and deteriorating. The date when it was put into use is unknown, but probably is 1920, because the station was established in 1911. It's a round cylindrical masonry tower with a gallery and a band of sculptured faces around it at about a quarter of the height, and a small red lantern on top.
