These towers are stunning and one of the Severn sister towers is the University. The building is quite a place to learn i can imagine

“Stretches high”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Although it was a long walk from the metro station to the campus, it was worth it. The walk was comfortable and pleasant on a good day. An opportunity to appreciate the nature.
The campus is huge and stretches tall and thin. Very nice path in front of the campus where you can take some really nice pictures. Worth a visit.

“Very impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

One of Stalin's 'Seven Sister' buildings, MGU is a very impressive piece of Soviet architecture set on the top of Sparrow Hills. Get the metro to Vorob'jovy Gory, walk up through the nature reserve to the top of the hill and you'll have Moscow sprawled out behind you and the university in front. A great afternoon's walking.

“Long Walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

A group of us walked to MGU from our house. The archetecture is marvelous, but there isn't much to do in that area. We did end up getting MGU sweatshirts, but they cost double if they are in Russian instead of English. Odd!

“The first and the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Not only the first and the best but also the biggest one. For people who studied there (as for me) the main place in Moscow. Excellent location, beautiful main building and green park around makes Moscow state University territory one of the favorite places for all.
