This is he place to go early in your stay to get a general overview of the size and layout of the city. A good pair of binoculars is advisable and as another reviewer says photography is a bit of a washout distance wise unless...More

A viewpoint of Moscow, but hard to take pictures, because the city is so huge! Probably a nice place to take a walk and just enjoy the view, but I visited, when it was windy and -1, so I didn't actually enjoy it.

A bit away from downtown but totally worth a visit. The hills open a great view on the city, the park itself is nice to walk around. A bit of a walk will also take you through Neskuchny Sad to Gorky Park.

It is really worth travelling up to Sparrow Hills to take in the amazing view of Moscow. It doesn't take long to get up there and rewards you with the views.

Great views of the city and river. Also see Moscow State University in opposite direction. No easy public transit.

Unfortunately it was rainy day so that I cannot see the good view from this Sparrow Hill over the Moscow City.

Lovely views over the city from Sparrow Hill. It's quite a long way out on the Metro but definitely worth a visit. Make sure you wear comfy shoes at it's a bit of trek from the Metro station.

A crowded place with touristic "attractions" The view is too far away, photography, even with strong telelens gives rather poor results
