Google Street View cars are returning to Hungary on April 23 to update views of various cities, roads, and motorways. The vehicles will visit cities and towns of all sizes.

Google tells the Budapest Business Journal that updating the 360º views allows Google Maps to faithfully represent the areas photographed (both streets and landmarks) and ensures that users can navigate effectively.

Cities and towns visited in the Western part of Hungary will include Veszprém, Sopron, Szombathely, Esztergom and Szekszárd. Cities and towns photographed in the Eastern part will include Eger, Orosháza, Kecel, Dabas, and Sárospatak.

Both sidewalks and areas unreachable by car will be photographed, allowing users to visit cities like Debrecen and the Balaton. People can also virtually travel to sights such as the Aggtelek National Park or the Ópusztaszer National Historical Monument Park.

Any faces and license plates included in the photographs will be blurred to protect privacy. People can also request the company to blur additional details (such as individuals, houses, and cars) by reporting the image after they have been published. This can be done by clicking the “Report an error” button found in the bottom right corner of the pictures.

The Street View images can be accessed on desktop computers, mobile devices, and Google Earth after they are released.
