City Maps


All of the following maps and the landmarks mentioned in each map have been compiled into our Google Earth Rohatyn Folder.

To view the contents of the folder, you will need to install Google Earth on your computer.

Goto to download the latest version of Google Earth.

Once Google Earth is installed, download our Rohatyn Folder onto your computer.

Once the Rohatyn Folder is on your computer, clicking on the Rohatyn Folder will open it in the Google Earth program.

As Google Earth opens, watch the globe as you descend toward the town of Rohatyn (Rogatin).

On the left hand side of the Google Earth screen, the Rohatyn Folder contents will be listed under 'Temporary Places'.

Click on each item in the list to zoom in on it or to bring it to the front.

Above the 'Layers' label, is a ball used as a slide to adjust the transparency of the maps.

Make sure the map item is highlighted when adjusting the transparency.

Believe me, it takes awhile to learn how to use and manipulate Google Earth.

Many thanks to Alberto for initiating this project.


(The table below gives the names of streets in Rohatyn as they were known at different periods of time. The label column provides numbers that correspond to labelled streets on the c1930 map and on the 2002 map. The current street names were obtained from the 2002 city map of Rohatyn and translated by Yefim. The 1943 street names correspond to the 1943 city map acquired and translated by Donia. The interwar period Polish street names were determined from the 1943 list, the 1932 city map, and lists made by Rosette Halpern. Many thanks go to them in providing the means to figuring this out. The task was made more difficult by the fact that some street names have moved from where they were known in 1943 to different locations on the the 2002 map. If you notice any mistakes or would like to add street names, please let me know. - Alex.)
