The view of Moscow city isn't any great from here, there are much-much better places to go for a good view of the city. I was quite disappointed as there isn't much i got to see at this view point.

Sparrow Hills gives a great panoramic view of the center of Moscow, as well as the state university, the biggest of the 7 sisters(identical-looking skyscrapers in Moscow). A must-see, indeed.
