Besides the Moscow State University, the attraction is quite simply the panoramic view of Moscow. Besides that is a meeting-point for youngsters (hip-hop dancers and tourists) where people sell typical Russian souvenirs.

Very romantic place to overlook Moscow. A hangout place for youngsters, cute couples, bikers, newly weds, hip-hop dancers and tourists. Definitely is the best in good weather, but worth visiting even if the sun isn't shining... The surrounding area has been under construction for a couple of months now, but it should be over soon. While you're there, drop by... More

The view is nice and worth a quick stop on a bus tour. Get a few pics of the city and stand under the love sign. Don't make a special trip to see this and definitely don't stay more than 15 minutes.

The hills are not very high, trees block much of the view. Unless you are going past to get somewhere else, don't bother. Construction site. I found it very disappointing.

The pictures speak louder than words on this one. A great place for a view of Moscow City. Take a tripod and your camera after hours for stunning pictures!

Amazing wild park with ski lift and some as wild as it can be in the park :D paths - nice hilly terrain and just beautiful. And the best metro station under the bridge - don't miss it !

It is under construction but you can still see the whole Moscow. Best free view on the city. Great in the evening with all the city lights. Don't buy food in the nearby spots, not tasty and fresh, but tea and coffee are ok. In summer the place is full of bikes and tuned cars (especially at nights).

This place breathes, you're not squeezed, there's so much space there. The huge and tall building of the Moscow State University from one side, the park around it and the balcony you may watch the most of Moscow - from the other! Amazing! The Russian Orthodox Church white and green at the left side. Enjoy!

A great place to get a panoramic view of the city. It was both fortunate & unfortunate that by the time we got to Sparrow Hills it was twilight but we stayed on and got to see the city lights. Throngs of people during the weekends just milling around. Motorcycle groups find Sparrow Hills a perfect spot to chill and... More

We got off at vorobevy gory metro station and it washard to find the observation deck because there are no clear signs. Once you get off the metro you need to walk up the hill above the bridge and then past the sports center. Moreover it was already dark (around 8pm) and a bit scary as there were very lamps.... More
