Google Street View cars are back on Croatian roads
Thanks to the Google Street View service, users have the opportunity to see most Croatian cities, such as Zagreb, Pula, Đakovo or Zadar, numerous historical sights such as the Cathedral of St. James in Šibenik, Diocletian’s Palace in Split, Neptune’s Temple in Poreč or the Osijek Fortress as and natural beauties such as Plitvice Lakes National Park or Papuk Nature Park. Google is aware that the infrastructure in cities, but also between cities, changes and develops over time, as well as that sometimes natural disasters leave their mark, so photos should be updated regularly. New photos will help users to orient themselves even better and plan trips more easily.
Street View is a popular feature of Google Maps available in more than 220 countries around the world, as well as in parts of the Arctic and Antarctic. Thanks to it, users can view different streets and cultural and national heritage in 360 degrees. It is also available in the Google Earth and Google Maps applications for mobile devices.
In Croatia, the Street View service has been available since 2012 and is constantly updated to provide the most faithful picture of reality. In addition to streets and roads, Google also photographed the pedestrian zones of Croatian cities and other places that cars do not have access to, such as Split’s Riva or Varaždin’s Old Town.
As always, Google is making every effort to protect privacy while providing all users with the benefits of Street View. Each publication of collected photos is preceded by processing using special technology. It blurs people’s faces and license plate markings so that they cannot be identified, thus protecting people’s privacy. Street View additionally includes the option of removing marked photos, which you can report by pressing the “Report a problem” button in the lower left corner of the photo.
