The observation platform on Sparrow Hills (Vorobyovy Gory), opened in 1953 together with the new building of the Moscow State University, is one of the most popular site among tourists: it gives the best panorama of the city, Moskva River, and a view of Moscow State University, it`s close to. The platform is at a height of 80 meters. The city is especially delightful in fine weather and late evening, when one can see thousands of lights twinkling around. No words or even photos can describe the beauty of Moscow. You may keep on looking for familiar buildings for hours, and six Stalin's skyscrapers are spread before your eyes. The seventh is behind your back - Lomonosov Moscow State University. An even more breathtaking view opens from the top floors of the main building of MSU. Here you can find an impressive collection of the Earth Science Museum and an amazing rotunda at the highest level.
Since recently, 10x optical zoom stationary binoculars are available for free. A special online webcam installed on the 13th floor gives you opportunity to have a look at the city staying inside your house. You can manage the webcam through the link http://bit.ly/SPIqs2.
