Strahov-library-360cities

Highest resolution 360 photo of an interior space, the Strahov Library in Prague. From the Observers Very Short List Panoramic photographer Jeffrey Martin spent five days shooting this 40-gigapixel image of the library at Strahov Monastery in Prague. Martin calls it “the largest interior photo in the world,” and “the highest-resolution view of any interior space that has ever been captured.” We think it’s stunning.
You can look in any direction (be sure not to miss the beautifully painted ceiling), and zoom in closely enough to read the ancient lettering on the spines of these very old books. Martin stitched 2,947 individual photos together to make the image. And armchair travelers, take note: It’s just one of the many excellent 360-degree panoramas you’ll find on the website belonging to Martin’s company, 360cities.
