The Street View Castle Tour
Expedia has created a really nice Street View tour of Malmö Castle in Sweden. The present castle was built in the 1530's by King Christian III of Denmark.
The Malmöhus Castle - Virtual Tour seems to have been made from custom Street View imagery captured by Expedia themselves. As you explore the castle in Street View you can click on the map markers to learn more about the castle and the historic paintings and objects it holds.
As you travel around the castle you can also listen to some audio recordings explaining the function of some of the castle's historic rooms.
If you feel inspired by Expedia's custom Street View tour then you might want to explore the Custom Street View section of the Google Maps API and the Street View Publish guide to submitting Street View imagery to Google Maps.
