The original building of the railway station serving the population of Sofia was opened in 1888 by architects Antonin Kolar, Bogdan Proshek and Todor Markov. In 1974 a new building was built according to the project of arch. Milko Bechev for serving the constantly growing population of the Capital. ”ROTONDAТА” railway station square is part of the general complex ”Central Railway Station Sofia”. After 1989, the importance and efficiency of this type of transport gradually decreased. From a representative place, it became a hotbed of drug addicts, prostitutes and vagrants. In 2002-2006, the square was reconstructed in order to revive and increase the flow of people. For this purpose, commercial sites were created, which are covered with an innovative tent type cover for this period in Bulgaria. The investment turned out to be unsuccessful and did not attract the population as a trade center. Even the construction of a second metro diameter of the unedrgound rail of Sofia and the situated Central Station metro station cannot revive the abandoned square.
