Even More Russian Street View


Gdeeetotdom is a Russian website that uses Google Maps as a means to navigate its 'street view' type interactive panoramic images and to display photographs of houses. The site has imagery coverage for a large part of Moscow and several other cities.

The interactive panoramas work in much the same way as Google's Street View with interactive arrows within each panorama that are used to navigate to the adjacent image. Each still photograph on the map contains a link to a description of that house and links to real-estate adverts for each house.


NORC uses Google Maps as the means to navigate around the 'street view' type panoramas. Unfortunately NORC does not have links within each panorama, so you can't use arrows to jump to the adjacent image. Instead you have to drag the map marker to the location you want to view.

NORC also doesn't seem to have quite as much coverage in Moscow as Yandex. However it does have some stunning panoramas of Russia's capital.

Yandex - Russian Street View

Russian search engine Yandex have added Street View type functionality to their online mapping service. At the moment the imagery seems confined to Moscow but it does appear that the whole city is covered.

Here are some direct links to some Yandex street views in Moscow:
