200 Panoramas and Counting

Panoramic Earth now has more than 200 panoramas featured on the site and continues to grow at a rapid pace. The 200th image is of Peterskirche (St Peter's Church) in Vienna.

360° Panorama of Peterskirche in Vienna

Built between 1701 and 1733, Peterskirche is one of the best Baroque churches of Vienna. The design is inspired by St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, and it was one of the first domed buildings in the city. The altarpiece within the church shows the Healing of the Lame by St. Peter and St. John in Jerusalem, and was painted by Martino Altomonte. Peterskirche lies at the heart of Vienna very close to Stephansplatz, one of the most visited Viennese sights.

This panoramic photograph was contributed to Panoramic Earth by Peter Watts.

Trafalgar Square gains a Lawn

For 2 days Trafalgar square was graced with a grass lawn. It seemed very popular with people and totally transformed the feel of the square from a vast area of paving to something much more relaxing. It is a shame that this was only for 2 days. There are two 360° panoramic photographs of this event: Panorama of the Trafalgar Square Lawn | Panorama from Nelson's Column.

This is just one of many panoramas taken from London, the complete list is found in the London Index of Panoramic Earth.
