Ever wondered what are the most searched places by Google Street View users? Today, the company answers this question. To celebrate the 15th anniversary of Maps, it has unveiled the list of the most popular countries, monuments, and cities in the world on its application.

This week Google Maps celebrates its 15th candle. For the occasion, the Mountain View company has planned some events. For example, Street View will finally give access to the historical display on smartphones, while a brand new camera will improve the quality of photos. Added to this is a small list published by Google that includes the most visited places on its platform.

Tokyo is on the podium of the most visited cities, while the United States is in second place in rural areas. Still, there were a few surprises in the standings.
