Its a view point over the city. Might be nice in summer but absolutely nothing to do in winter afternoon. From the you can see building of Moscow State University. Besides the view point there is also a vast park which is absolutely deserted in winter.

This is the best place to see the entire city. The view of Moscow from Vorobyovy Gory is amazing and should be on the list of any traveler. If you look behind you can enjoy a view of the Moscow University building, a magnificent example of Stalinist architecture. It is also a favourite place of Moscovites for wedding celebrations.

One of the most serene and calm places in Moscow, away from the hustle of a busy city, this is where you can enjoy a calm walk through the sprawling garden in front of the university or just sit around and enjoy the lovely view of the serene and beautiful Sparrow Hills. A Must go to if you are in... More

Moscow is a big city. There are tall bildings and other places to observe the panorama. But this place is the best, morning or evening, cloudy or sunny - come to here to see the beautiful city!

This hill provides a breathtaking overview of Moscow. Nearby is the University of Moscow. Motorbikers have taken up residence on the hill to show off their bikes and riding gear. 3 in 1 and all free!

Great city view. Like with many Moscow outdoor activities better done in Summer. On Summer weekends evenings a lot of young locals including bikers and street racers come here and have spontaneous outdoor parties. Completely peaceful, the atmosphere is great. A new cable car set to connect Sparrow Hills with the Luzhniki stadium is currently under construction and will launch... More

A nice view of the city from distant observation viewing the growing skyscrapers of Moscow City and other parts of Moscow. The location is above the river in front of the big building of the university and near the trinity church . Not a MUST site but nice to visit.

The view is amazing, but only on good weather, and since the center of the city is not that close, you'll need binoculars to truly enjoy the experience Another downside is that there are no cafes nearby at all, only a few overpriced fast-food points -- so bring your snacks or don't come hungry!
