In summer time I go through the Sparrow Hills almost every weekend. One can see the Moscow from here like on his palm and in comparison e.g. with Ostankino Tower the most of Moscow attractions are much closer and easily can be recognized. Of course the weather will influence on the overall impression and to tell the truth I can... More

I have been at sparrow hill in November'14. It was actually wrong time to be there. But somehow we enjoyed the cold weather. We were running jogging and joking! It is a fun place. And Moscow university near the sparrow hill in another attraction. The metro of Vorobyovy Gory is one of those metro stations above ground. Good spot to... More

In January , it is quite cold, therefore you have to make sure that you have the wright clothes. Very nice place , you can walk in forest, go to observation point and look over Moscow city. There is also a lift going down to the park.

Sparrow Hill is the highest point in Moscow. Visited the place in the evening. The drive goes past the Moscow University and is quite a nice drive, the place was totally packed with tourists and bikers, with their jackets, there is really not much to see except a lot of people, bikers, tourist and a good panoramic view of Moscow...

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!
