Great place for viewing Moscow and Lomonosov MSU, like any viewpoint, it depends on the weather. In the summer there are a lot of bikers, in addition to hikers and restings, who are annoyingly loud.

All you get is a panoramic view of place around. Nothing special but its not terrible either. It's an okay place. Good place to watch the fireworks on New Years though...less crowded!
