Street View is finally here!

Street View is finally here! It was released on  May 15th. All panorama photos were taken last summer.

I was worried that there will be no Old Town panoramas, but it seems that almost all of Old Town is now in  Google Street View. Only few places are absent : Kohtuotsa platform, Patkuli platform/stairs and Pikk jalg street.


There are also some strange blank spots on J√§rvevana street.

Street View update

As it turns out, panoramas taken last October were just a test. Starting from June 19th, Regio is taking Street View images in Tallinn and other parts of Estonia.

There are several photos of Google cars on Delfi ( link) and Postimees ( link):

On Pae street ( Location on Google Maps)

In other news, Regio opened a non Street View panorama website 360.tallinn.ee.

Panoramas were created by panographer and web developer Andrei Bodrov (his 360cities account).
