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.

Not much to see other than a far away view of the Moscow skyline which is not much. The 'hill' is not high as Moscow is relatively flat. University is in the area and so you can also take some pictures with the university building as backdrop, but nothing inspiring. Would give it a pass if you're short on time... More

This provides a wonderful view of the city! It is great to see the detail in the day but at night the lights of the city are stunning.

This hill seems to be a location for tourists from all around Europe. It is a hill with a view, but the greatest thing seems to be a cable car down, 5 and half minutes to the embankment.

With the iconic Moscow University behind you the view from Sparrow Hill spans across the city. Well worth the ride up to see it.
