Google’s Field Trip (GFT) is a mobile app developed by Google’s Niantic Labs for iPhone, Android mobile devices and Google Glass. The app recognises your location and lets you explore and discover more about your surroundings, from telling you about local history to giving tips on the best places to shop, eat and have fun. It has registered over 1 million downloads so far and is available in more than 30 languages.

Europeana, Google’s Niantic Labs and selected cultural institutions started a partnership to show European cultural treasures on the Field Trip app and enrich your travel experiences. In this opening phase, our partners – the Swedish National Heritage Board, the National Heritage Board of Estonia and the National Heritage Board of Poland – will guide you to beautiful and prominent historical buildings, monuments and archaeological sites in their respective countries.
