With the Olympics making their way to Rio de Janeiro in the coming weeks, Google is now offering a new way to explore the city from the comfort of your own home. From its beautiful beaches to awesome landscapes, this city is one you will want to check out, even if you can't get there in person. Google has taken the time to map the whole city, so you can even explore the areas that previously weren't even registered with addresses.


From Google's announcement:

The collection includes 360° panoramas with Street View technology, some 3,000 images from photo archives and art exhibits, virtual reality tours with Google Cardboard and videos showcasing a new generation of Cariocas making their mark in the city's cultural landscape. From iconic monuments and spectacular views, to the history of Guanabara Bay and the majestic Theatro Municipal, these online exhibits capture Rio from every angle.
