Images with several Romanian tourist sights, such as the Peles Castle, the Village Museum (in picture) in Bucharest, Corvinilor castle and Sighisoara citadel, as well as several smaller cities in Romania have been included in Google Maps via its application Street View. Users can thus visit the Romanian sites virtually, seeing more details than ever before online, according to Google Romania.
These new additions come on top of the already existing Romanian cities which had been included in Google’s Street View. The expansion of the Street View project for Romania started mid – last year, when the Google car and bicycle started mapping some of the best known tourist sights in Romania. Street View thus expanded its coverage of Romania by hundreds of localities.
Street View is an application from Google Maps and is available in 50 countries already. It was launched at the end of 2010, and for Romania it was the first localized service introduced in the country after the opening of Google’s Bucharest office. Street View for Romania was initially covering the main ski resorts on Prahovei valley, the Black Sea seaside and the larger cities of Bucharest, Arad, Oradea, Braşov, Timişoara, Cluj, Sibiu and Constanţa.
