Russian search engine giant Yandex is rapidly expanding a new service similar to Google Street View, making it possible to see what certain buildings look like or even take a tour through city streets.
Most regional centers and even some CIS capitals appear to be covered. Simply click on the “panorama” button on the mapsyandex.ru site, and available streets will be highlighted in purple.
Yandex also unveiled beautiful birds-eye-view panoramics of St. Petersburg, with several high-resolution images good enough to print out, for example: bit.ly/smolny
