Pictures of main tourist attractions in Romania, on Google map

In the following months Google will collect, through the Street View service, images of some of the most beautiful sights and of the main tourist attractions in Romania. According to Dan Bulucea, General Manager Google Romania, the Street View coverage will grow to include another 39 large cities, including Craiova, Focsani, Baia Mare, Ramnicu Valcea, Alba Iulia, Galati, Deva, Hunedoara, Sfantu Gheorghe and Zalau, adding over 40,000 kilometers to its initial coverage. The point of departure of the Google Street View car and trike (a special bicycle that includes a photo camera) was marked yesterday at the Romanian Athenaeum, one of the most representative national cultural landmarks that will be added to the Street View. Other tourist attractions whose images will be accessible through Google Street View are the Retezat National Park, Sighisoara’s historic centre, the wooden churches in Maramures, the monasteries in Moldavia, the villages with fortified churches in Transylvania, the Peles Castle, the Bicazului Pass and many others. Google Trike can take images from areas that are inaccessible to the Street View car, areas such as the domains around castles, parks or pedestrian areas. Partners from all over the world invite Google to photograph and include tourist attractions in Street View in order to attract more tourists. The Bucharest City Hall’s proposal in this project is for Google Street View to include pictures from Bucharest’s historic centre in the near future.
