Good view, but it takes more than half an hour to arrive here from the city center. A lot of people even in terrible weather as we visited. Take in account 20 minutes walk from underground station. Bottom line - nice to see, but not...More

Good skyline view of business district and Olympic stadium from 1980. Lots of tour busses stop here. If you are in area, worth a look. Although if you into views, the TV tower is significantly better (but there is a fee)

Opposite to Moscow university the observation deck offers Panaromic view of Moscow. Looks like a bikers paradise as we saw some motor bikes zooming.

If you can drive here, do it that way. Or, if you wish to get some exercise, go on foot. We came by Metro, and the walk up wasn't easy for us. (We are seniors.)

You can view the skyline of Moscow at this point. The observation deck is located near the main gate of Moscow State University. Luzhniki Stadium is right in front of the observation deck.

This is great place to be during summer/spring/autumn. Avoid it during winter. A lot of snow and ice. As you know, the combination of a hill+ice= fatality. Other than that, this place has stunningly beautiful views of MSU as well as the embankment of mOscow...More

This is perhaps one of the highest points in Moscow. It has an observation platform from where one can get a panoramic view of the city. As this was our first photo stop after entering Moscow, we enjoyed the view. The guide explained the various...More
