When the thought that in the near future there will be no opportunity to travel begins to seem unbearable, online cameras from all over the world comes to save your day.
We offer a selection of video tours – from a trip across the Alps on a narrow-gauge railway to a view of the Earth from the International Space Station.

It is possible that now that we are in self-isolation, we can finally enjoy the feeling of an astronaut in space on our skin. The only difference – the Earth, which seems distant and inaccessible for them, is real and tangible to us.
2. Empty Las Vegas
These scenes evoke sadness and philosophical reflections – a gambling and show business paradise built in the desert – a city that never sleeps – has been left without visitors.
Iconic neon signs illuminate only a few cars and rare police patrols. Players’ money stays in their wallets.
3. A virtual walk in the Dutch flower paradise
As every year, at the beginning of 2020, the staff of Keukenhof Park planted about seven million different flowers – tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, orchids, roses and much more. In April, everything happened its course – the park is in full bloom, but there is a lack of visitors. That’s why Keukenhof Park has decided to go to the video this spring.
4. Bear watching in Transylvania
The camera is located in the most mountainous and beautiful region of Romania, Transylvania, where bears, wild boars, deer, foxes and other living creatures can be found in the nature park. Eight bears became live stars last fall, each gaining a name.
Now, after hibernation, they are all lively again, and their flocks have been supplemented by baby bears. This is a live broadcast that will test your patience and perseverance.
5. Rhine Falls in Switzerland
This waterfall in Switzerland is considered one of the largest in Europe. It is located upstream of the Rhine on the border between the cantons of Schaffhausen and Zurich. Waterfall height – 23 m, width – 150 m. During the summer season, 600 cubic meters of water spills over it every second. It is currently closed to visitors in person, but everyone now has an exclusive opportunity to enjoy it and the panorama of the town of Neuhausen in noble solitude without crowds.
6. A camera at a water source in the Kenyan savannah
This camera is one of the organizations “Explore” world’s largest natural online camera network. It is located in a hiding place at a spring in the Kenyan savannah, which is visited by all savannah inhabitants – from elephants to jackals. It is to be hoped that they will be thirsty today.
7. Railway in the Alps at an altitude of 2200 m
If you feel that you need two meditative lessons, then this is a great opportunity – a narrow-gauge railway trip across the Alps from St. Moritz in Switzerland to Tirano in Italy. The railway route is considered to be the highest in Europe – it crosses the Alpine ridge along the 2253 m high Bernina crossing. The height difference on this route is 1824 m. This is not an online camera, but we can guarantee that it will be two hours with breathtaking views of nature.
