This summer, Google Street View cars are returning to Romania to update Google Maps images. Priority will be given to the roads and main roads linking the localities, in the idea that they have changed or have been extended since 2010 until now. The cars will start on June 25 and will travel through our country for two months.
Accessible from Google Maps, Street View is currently available in more than 85 countries, including the Arctic and Antarctic. With Google Street View, people can see 360 ° images from many places in the world, whether roads, cities, historical monuments, cultural landmarks, wildlife (on the earth, on or in the water) and even space. The service is also available in Google Earth and the Google Maps for mobile phones application
Street View is available in Romania since 2010, when the first images of the most important cities on Google Maps were published. Street View coverage across the country took place in 2012 when 40,000 km of roads, 39 cities and hundreds of landmarks were taken over. The extension of Street View in Romania continued after this time, updating images from major cities and adding various tourist attractions such as Turda Salt, Bran Castle, Alba Iulia Fortress, Brukenthal National Museum or the Danube River.
Also during this period, Street View is extended with images from the Danube Delta, a project developed in collaboration with World Wide Fund Romania. In the next time, Street View images from different tourist attractions in Transilvania will be published on Google Maps so users can find new destinations on Google Maps
