This is a nice little drive up and out of the city. On the way up you can see different places to live in Moscow that are very upscale. Once at the top you get great views of the city and can walk around and just relax.

I wasn't fascinated by this place, I read that it is a great spot to have a full view of Moscow city, but it wasn't that great, so I don't recommend anyone to spend time to go there

In my opinion, this is not a must do. Although it offers a view of the city, there is no guarantee that one will be able to see the view esp. on a cloudy day...

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
