Google Street View hits Moscow

Moscow Google Street View

From Russia with visuals, Google has expanded their Street View product to include Moscow and St. Petersberg. The cities, largest and second-largest in the country, feature historical sites that people can now explore from the comfort of them computer or mobile device.

The Kremlin, Red Square, and Peter and Paul Fortress are now within (most) everyone’s potential view. The image above shows Troitskaya Tower in the center of the northwest wall of the Moscow Kremlin. As with everything Google does these days, they’re pitching Google+, prompting people to share places from Street View on the social network by using the hashtag #streetview.
