Street View finally arrives in Russia

Google has just released Street View in Russia, and while it only covers two cities so far (Moscow and St. Petersburg), the coverage in those cities is quite solid.

To see the new imagery for yourself, you simply search for one of the cities in Google Earth and then drag the peg man on to the map. Here’s a quick video to show how that works:

You can also check out the Russian Street View Gallery that was assembled by Keir Clarke at Google Maps Mania, as he’s found some great locations to highlight in there.

  1. I dont know if it’s new but there is also first streetview coverage in Poland – it’s in the city of Lodz and it covers only main promenade – Piotrkowska street. This street was selected as main showcase for streetview in Poland.

  2. Streetview in Moscow and St Petersburg is a welcome and fascinating addition. It no doubt gives a pretty selective picture of this vast country, but is likely to at odds with some GE users’ perceptions of Russia.

    I am still waiting Street View in ARGENTINA

  4. I don’t know what the time lag is between driving the Google cars and getting their imagery online, but last summer, “Where is Street View” showed activity in Ingham County, MI for 3 or 4 months, and I’m still waiting for anything new to show up around Lansing.

    New Zealand now has high res street view imagery

    I love Russia & I was excited for street view to be released in this country. здорово!

  7. When will Street View in Croatia ?

  8. I’m awaiting street view for Indian cities like Mumbai, Bangalore and Chennai. I think the Indian government should not feel very insecure about street view data being published online. It does not give negative publicity for the country to outsiders. So what if some slums are shown.
