App Store Description

Here we present an electronic version of the folded map of Rome and Vatican from the renowned cartographic publishing house Discus Media.
The edition is presented in two languages—Russian and Italian. The map contains lots of information, which will be of interest to tourists who want to familiarize themselves with these wonderful places on their own.
This edition contains a road map of Rome and its suburbs, a detailed map of Rome’s centre (and Vatican as well), a map of city transport, and a map showing roads to the airport. Lines and stops of city’s transport are shown, as well as roads, their types and numbers. On this map you will also find historical sights, palaces and temples, museums, theatres, hotels, parking sites and tourist information centres. Coloured pictures of the most interesting historical buildings are presented.
Names of geographical objects, streets and sights are inscribed in Italian, most of them also have inscriptions in Russian, and some of the names are transcribed.
The edition also contains an index of street names (in alphabetical order), a bilingual list of sights, a list of malls and other useful information.

Printed editions have something magical, something that does not exist in their electronic equivalents. They were created by living people, who labored over each centimeter of the map, they were not created by robots. We decided to combine these achievements of the print editions with the new possibilities of contemporary electronic platforms.
Our app is not intended as a replacement for GPS navigators, Apple Maps, GоogleMaps, YandexMaps, etc. This is why you can transit from any map section to a corresponding section of a service of your choosing (Apple Maps, Gоogle Maps, YandexMaps) and back again.

Highlights of the app:
1. You can work offline.
2. You can navigate your way to any desired map section through the traditional index map or simply by turning pages.
3. You have the ability to magnify individual parts of a map, bookmark interesting pages, search by street names, underground stations, railway stations, sights, etc.
4. You have the ability to add your own information to the map (comments, addresses, telephone numbers – including the ability to dial directly from within the app).
5. When online, you can transit from any map section to a corresponding section of a service of your choosing (Apple Maps, Gоogle Maps, YandexMaps) and back again.

The advantages of the electronic version of the map:
- It does not bend, tear or become lost at the most inopportune moment.
- The ease with which you can search, magnify and examine details, add notes and additional information – utilizing the power and features of today’s devices.
- It has something magical, something that does not exist in its electronic equivalents. The map was created by living people, who labored over each centimeter of the map, it was not created by robots. And it has all possibilities of contemporary electronic platforms (smartphones, tablets and other gadgets).

The quality and art of traditional paper maps is being replaced by much less attractive automated digital maps. Our app brings these excellent paper maps into the mobile age, helping to ensure they continue to provide you with both knowledge and enjoyment – it would be a tragedy if they were relegated only to libraries, inaccessible to most people. We want to give a second life to paper maps. This app is for people who love good old printed maps and want to go with the times.
