The Sparrow Hills are high on the mountain. We stopped really fast to view the city and it was great. Our guide told is it was a great day since the air space was clear and we where able to see most of the sites.

We took the Metro out here near the university to see the city overlook but couldn't find it. Stalin's largest Seven Sister building is here, though, so not a total waste.

The park has been renovated, so that now there are touristic routs and cycle paths. It is spread over the hill. Down the hill you may stroll along the river, up the hill you may see marvelous view of the whole city and to have a look at one of Stalin's sky scrapers - Moscow State University.

It is in the region where the University of Moscow is located. The views are good showing the Moscow olympic stadium, historic center of moscow, and others. Nice place to visit
