"On the walls of Elsinore Castle, nestled on the northeastern coast Helsingør in Denmark, Bernardo and Francisco uttered the opening words to William Shakespeare’s most famous tragedy. The castle known locally as Kronborg and immortalized by Hamlet, provided the setting for the Prince of Denmark to play out his personal battle with madness, grief and searing rage. Today we’re also launching images from inside Kronborg and its surroundings, so you can discover for yourself the inspiration behind Shakespeare’s masterpiece," Google announced in a blog post.
Google Maps was recently booted from Apple's iOS platform as a native app, a controversial decision that hasn't been particularly well received by iPhone and iPad users. However, Google recently updated its Google Maps application on the web to include Street View functionality, so iOS 6 users can still join in the fun.
