in 90s of XX century and thus it
lapsed in oblivion after many years

to rescue that monumental object.

roundhouse tourist showplace through
the restoration of railway functions.
They also created the concept of
utilization of roundhouse in Pila.
The group of citizens of Pila
encourages private and public
entities to cooperate in that matter
to preserve the roundhouse for
