The Astronomical-Meteorological Observatory on the summit of the Pip Ivan Mountain in the Chornohora mountain range had been opened just before the outbreak of World War II, on August 1938. The renovated building should serve rescuers, tourists and the academic community from Ukraine and Poland.
The photos show the scaffold installed around the meteorological tower, which at the same time is the highest part of the building, but also the most destroyed. Moreover, one of the objectives of the project is reconstruction and structural adaptation of former astronomical and meteorological observatory on the Pip Ivan mountain to the needs of high mountain rescue service training center as well as rescue station functioning all the year round (24/7).
