The observing facilities of the solar observatory have been closed in 2016, which were functioned as bases of
observer and research activities between 1958-2015. The European observatory has a unique, detailed sunspot data
catalogue in Europe and the world, in wide time intervals, which is still maintained and growing by the DPD team.
