  • I haven't had opportunity to visit inside the MGU, but just seeing it from outside is a lofelong experience. This building with the park around has so incredibile dimensions that it would take maybe m...  more »
  • We went on the Hill of the sparrows on the way to the Novodevichy Convent and cemetery which are next door. the University is a huge building not very aesthetic, but planted at the top of this hill. The view allows to see another facet of Moscow with his part skyscraper, and pollution of its industry. The University is not essential, but the view is worth stopping for a few moments.

  • It is some Stalinist architecture buildings. That is certainly overwhelming, but it highlights, personally had enough, because not even watching from afar.

  • One of the magnificent Stalin skyscrapers dotted around the city and an absolute must-see. A wonderful campus worth seeing even if you're just passing through. The park behind the university leading to the lecturers' residences is very well maintained. Highly recommended as a photo opportunity.
  • Amazing building of Stalin time. Do suggest to take a walk from Universitet metro station to the main building of the Moscow State University and later visit the panoramic view point and continue walking down through Vorobievy Gory park. Nice couple hours walk. (Unfortunately you can't enter the building without an invitation from someone who works or study there)
  • From the architecture perspective, amazing, huge complex. Too bad that they don't any more have visits to see the inside or up in the tower. Some private tour companies offer a visit for 200+ USD, not worth that much.
  • It is of course maybe the most beautiful building of all seven sisters, and it was worth visiting it, but we were not able to enter the university itself because the security checks.. Furthermore, nobody knew to explain us how to find the shop to buy a souvenir..
  • One of the iconic landmarks of Moscow. My favourite building among the seven sisters (seven historical tall structure in Moscow) even the park on front of the building is amazing.

Where to stay in Moscow

The capital of Russia and a huge metropolis, Moscow offers a plethora of different types of accommodations. Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive. Those traveling on a more modest budget can choose among the boutique or Soviet-era hotels. There are also numerous hostels and short-term rental apartments throughout the city. When choosing a place to stay, especially if you're only planning for a short visit, always bear in mind the size of Moscow. Staying too far from the center might mean that the precious time you could spend on sightseeing will be wasted in traffic and transport.
