Street View for Central Europe (Not from Google)

Until Google manages to gather Street View imagery for the entire world, there's a big opportunity for other companies to offer a similar service.

Norc is a street-view service created by the Romanian company eXtreme Soft Group, which covers cities from 5 European countries:

* Austria: Wien
* Czech Republic: Prague, Brno
* Poland: Warsaw, Krakow, Poznan, Wroclaw
* Slovakia: Bratislava, Trnava, Kosice, Banska-Bystrica, Zilina, Nitr
* Romania: Bucureşti, Ploieşti, Constanţa, Braşov, Cluj-Napoca, Timişoara, Iaşi, Sibiu, Piteşti, Târgovişte

Norc uses Google Maps API to let you find a location, but the search feature doesn't offer good results. Maximize the Street View window to better see the panoramic images and use the arrows to navigate.

If you know other services inspired by Google Street View that have a significant coverage, post their links in the comments.
