Resource for Places and Transportation in Russian: Яндекс карты

From http://russianportal.wordpress.com/2011/04/13/%D1%8F%D0%BD%D0%B4%D0%B5%D0%BA%D1%81-%D0%BA%D0%B0%D1%80%D1%82%D1%8B

Яндекс карты is the Russian answer to Google Maps. Moscow has the most detailed maps, which include live traffic, webcams, panoramic street view, public transport routes, local businesses, photos, map/satellite/hybrid views – even a layer that shows the path of Gagarin’s first flight into space, complete with a transcript of his transmissions. There’s also a link to a map of the Moscow metro, where you can find out how to get from one station to another, complete with the number of stops, transfers, and approximate travel time.

Яндекс карты is available at http://maps.yandex.ru
