Prague in 3D

This morning I've been touring the Czech Republic using the 3D map layer of Mapy.cz. Mapy.cz is an interactive map of the world, which creates and uses its own map data in the Czech Republic and OpenStreetMap data for the rest of the world. By using its own map data within the Czech Republic Mapy.cz is able to provide a fantastic 3D map view created from its own aerial imagery.

My tour of the Czech Republic included a number of impressive tourist destinations. Here are some quick links to view some of Czechia's most beautiful spots in 3D on Mapy.cz:

Hněvín Castle
Ceský Krumlov Castle
Brno's Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul
Hluboká Castle
Mount Sněžka

Alongside its impressive 3D map layer Mapy.cz includes a number of other features including a route planner for traveling by car, public transport, bike and on foot. The map also features a large number of points of interest, many of which include descriptions from Wikipedia, user submitted photos & reviews, and opening times & contact details.
