This serie of 2 stamps were released to celebrate the 300th anniversary of Swedish lighthouses. And this might be the bigger concentration of lighthouses in one stamp.
From left to right, starting with the lever light (primitive form of lighthouse); following with the Falsterbo rev light vessel;  then Landsort lighthouse and finishing with the Svenska Björn lighthouse.
