Sparrow Hills

Sparrow Hills, Moscow Overview

Situated on the right bank of the Moskva river, Sparrow Hills provide a great vantage point of the entire city.

Sparrow Hills are a popular place for people to relax and take in panoramic views of Moscow. A short hike from the Varobyovy Gory metro station, the highest point of the hills is at a height of 85 metres above the city, so you also get a little bit of a workout as you make the uphill climb. At the top of the hill is the Moscow State University, an important centre of education of the city and the nation and quite a breathtaking building in itself. The observation platform over here offers what is popularly considered as the best view of the city. From here, the most prominent structure you'll notice is the Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow's Olympic stadium, along with the domes of Novodevichy convent, Christ the Savious Cathedral, the Kremlin cathedrals and Stalin's high rise seven sisters. Even if you come up here at night, with the city lit up, the views are magnificent!
