The park offers a lovely view of Moscow. The park is also quite great, and it is a nice opportunity to chill and enjoy some shadow and trees.

Nice panorama of the city. Very convenient from parking lot. Right across from the university of Moscow so it’s sort of a two fer. Well worth a stop if in the area but perhaps not a destination location.
