“Wouldn't go out of my way to see it, especially if time is short”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Okay, highest point in Moscow ...I get it. You can see the Universty, very nice. You can also look down the Stadium that hosted the 1980 Olympics, yep, there it is. It was cloudy the night I was there, so maybe that is affecting my judgement, but the view was so-so (certainly compared to the dozens of things worth seeing in Moscow) and it's really nothing more than a tourist trap. You can safely miss this ... spend extra time at the Kremlin, Red Square, a museum, walking around, etc, etc. .. much better use of your time.

“Nothing special. Not really a Moscow view from there”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Rather a souvenir stop than Moscow view is what is offered . Nevertheless since you are in front of the huge Lomonosov University, this a reason to go up there . Otherwise give a miss

“Slightly overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Every city has a highest viewing point and Sparrow hill fits that category for Moscow.

But personally, i didnt find the view a big deal and this can definitely not be a tourist spot. It is just fine for visiting,particularly by night...but don't take time out from a busy schedule to do this.
