Wow, it's a massive update. The whole of Poland is available, Hungary and Kaliningrad as well.

Bucharest looks so clean without those awful cables.

Poor E70 travellers. Btw, I've always thought E70 ran via Piteşti, not Alexandria.

what's the deal with those castles in Romania? why are they 'popular'? isn't it hard to get a construction permission for such building?

Gyppo's idea of wealth and fortune, I don't think any those buildings actually have a building permit. And, no, it's very easy to build in the Romanian countryside without one.

What's the problem? Clearly it's Victorian-nouveau(with a hint of curry).

In Italy the biggest problem wouldn't be "how to get a construction permission for that kitch house" but "how to justify a such expensive building if you don't have an official taxable income".
If a piece of land that you own, outside a place classificated as "of historical or environmental interest" is legally suitable for edification (and designed as such on municipal maps), you can build with whatever style you want, as long as you respect safety laws and other regulations (like the minimun distance between a building and a propertry border).

Yes, whole Hungary is in Streetview now. Photos are a little bit old (usually Nov 11 - Feb 12) but Google said they will come once again and update them. Of course everyone searched his own house right in the rist hours :-)
Strange, that while in some towns even the very last muddy road is explored, there are some towns where only some main streets are explored, nothing more.

I did a quick look in Kaliningrad. Doesn't look so nice, at least not comparing with former Königsberg. And they built that monster where a castle was

Yes, the distruction of Konigsberg by the Soviets (and the reconstruction with Soviet style) was one of the worst crimes against the historical heritage ever committed in Europe. There are some threads about the topic:

Similar things were committed in Romania during Ceasescu regime:

Street View has really old images. I remember seeing pics from July 2007 somewhere in the US . Around here the oldest ones are from May 2008. But I really like Google hit the right area at the right time: This paper sheet has been looooooooooong gone by now, I'm sure it is about the crazy fundraiser that happened that month (And it explains indirectly why I like Zaragoza bus line 35 and by extension any route numbered 35).

Königsberg was destroyed by the Royal Air Force in 1944. Soviets would've had to reconstruct it, if it wanted to look the same. But everything German was hated then.

Meanwhile in Norway...



The local football team Ny Krohnborg IL returned from their winter break discovered that the council had built a new road on their home pitch.

I believe that they did not discover that only now. I'm sure they were notified months in advance. Looks like that footbal pitch was made from artificial grass which could be good as a geosynthetics layer between ground and road body (much better than ordinary grass) so they did not remove it before road construction.

newspaper says that they didn't know

Quote:
Krohnborg chairman Radney Thomsen told reporters:

We were quite shocked when we discovered that the road cut [into the pitch]. The start of the season is just around the corner, but no-one had informed us. We feel simply run over.

Comically this is not the first time that the council had screwed over Ny Krohnborg IL, as three years ago the pitch was cut down in size after a new path was inserted into the far end of the playing surface.

My favorite traffic sign:

- Town area, no special speed limit. It means in Hungary max. 50 km/h.
- So check that blue sign in the middle of the previous picture! In the left lane minimal allowed speed is 50 km/h.

So in the left lane it's allowed only to drive at exactly 50 km/h! :-)
