Sparrow Hills, Moscow

(4.6/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
For panoramic views over Moscow, head to Sparrow Hills, the highest point in the city. Located on the right bank of the Moscow River, this hill rises to about 220 m (720 ft) above river level and features a large observation platform. Named after a nearby village, the tree-covered hill has provided inspiration for generations of Russian poets, painters, and architects. Today, the lookout draws both foreign visitors and local picnickers, who come here to take photographs with the entire city as their backdrop. Visit on a clear day and try to spot the domes of some of the city's famous churches, or climb the hill at night to see Moscow lit up by streetlights. Using our custom trip planner, Moscow attractions like Sparrow Hills can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • In Sparrow the mountains successfully, in my opinion, the combined terrain and variety of terrain to meet the different needs of the tourist. Here you can harmoniously combine long walks and skiing boat boat on the Moscow river. From the observation deck offers spectacular views of the towers ensemble Moscow city, Moskva River, the famous Central University complex building of Moscow State University, Luzhniki Olympic Stadium! And it's all in one place! Would definitely recommend to take the time to visit this wonderful place!

  • Worn out facility, no bicycles allowed, good view on moscow river and LUZHNIKI stadium, poor menu list a bit overpriced.
  • Besides the great view it's a meeting point for motorcycle clubs and street racers. There's a walkway down to the Moskva River only a few hundred meters away to the right.
  • Прекрасное место
  • Прекрасный вид на город
  • The large park. and all the beautiful and fresh. At the top you can see a little bit of Moscow =)) and a good place for walking and rollerblading, longah and any bike.
