Virtual Magic Carpet Ride

This is a real treat to all my fellow-armchair travellers! Many of the panoramas have tiny little helicopters to click on when you want to zoom in and see a certain monument, waterfall, peak, etc. I have explored three of the sites so far and I still can’t believe all I’ve seen and read. The English translation is not perfect, but you can definitely tell what you are seeing and how difficult it was to get some of these shots.

Pick a city - after it loads, click once and..... taa-daaa you're there!
