You’re just a click away from the Bahai Gardens in Haifa or the Kotel in Jerusalem, thanks to Google Street View which went live in Israel over the weekend.

The Google application lets internet users explore places around the world through 360-degree street-level imagery.

In Israel, the application has images of Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa on offer.

The Internet giant had to agree to some censoring when uploading images of Israel’s streets, and was meant to blur out faces of people and license plates automatically.

Outside of Israel, the Google application offers 3-D views of world landmarks, natural wonders and even the inside of restaurants and small businesses.
