all, because they’ll be able to find all the information they need on our maps. As of today, MAPS.ME helps users book
hotel rooms, choose a cafe or restaurant based on user reviews, hail a taxi or plan a trip on the
meter. The launch of walking routes fits well with our strategy, as our users no longer need to
spend time searching for the most popular sights and other attractions. We’ve already done it for
them and found the most interesting destinations! ” said Eugene Lisovsky, CEO of MAPS.ME.
