A specially designed camera, known as 'the trolley', recorded the interiors of the so-called Copper-Roof Place (Pałac Pod Blachą).
Internet-users will soon be able to peruse a series of interiors from the palace, including the apartments of Napoleonic hero Prince Józef Poniatowski, the Royal Library, and chambers adorned with a collection of Oriental Rugs.
Google has been capturing noted international museums and galleries since 2011. Polish institutions that can already be visited on Street View include the Copernicus Science Centre in Warsaw, Castle Ksiąz in Wałbrzych and Kornik Castle. (nh)
