We visited Sparrow Hills on part of our comprehensive city tour from the river boat Andrei Rublev. Great views right across the city and the University buildings. Many Muscovites have their wedding photos taken here, we were lucky to see a wedding party, they released doves.

We went to this place twice, once in the day and once in the night (evening). For the day trip we took a chair lift up from the riverside. There is a very nice view to Moscow from the upper station of the lift. There are several free binoculars. On the other side (with your back to the river) you... More

A visit from Sparrow Hill will give you much better view of this great city. Also on the road you will see Gorky Park and other land marks.

Try this if you re tired of driving around Moscow's busy traffic. It offers a simple view of Moscow's skyline. I call it simple as its not high enough as the name suggests. You can take a few pictures and try to locate all seven of Stalin's sisters. The Moscow State University is right across the road. Bikers linger around... More

Good to drive past and stop for a picture, which countless brides and grooms do but only on a clear day. The great Moscow University is here too and well worth a photo stop.
