 "Sparrow Hills"


Sparrow Hills is one of the most popular places among Moscovites and guests of the city. 

The observation platform situated there at the steep bank of the Moskva River at an altitude of 85 meters above the river or 200 meters above sea level enables one to enjoy the panoramic view of the city, which gives a better idea of Moscow and its size.

Sparrow Hills is also famous for the Moscow State University, one of the main educational and scientific centers of Russia. It was founded in 1755 by the great Russian scientist Mikhail Lomonosov. The main building of the University is one of the seven high-rises, so-called Stalin sisters, built in the middle of the last century. The total height of the 36 storied building with a spire and a star is 327 meters that makes it the second highest building of Moscow after Ostankino TV Tower, which is around 540 meters high.
