Looking to the past of Antwerp with the Retronautis app

Yes, current measures against coronavirus COVID-19 restrict our freedom of movement drastically. Nevertheless we’d like to share this nifty app.

Retronautis is an app which uses historical maps to illustrate historical photographs and illustrations.


Retronautis uses markers to indicate a huge collection of photographs and illustrations on the their exact relevant location. The user can also navigate through maps of several time periods.

It uses old photographs, paintings and drawings to throw you back to the olden days. It also provides you with information concerning the sights you see.
