Moscow is gorgeous and gigantic city - biggest in Russia. It always makes you feel very small in this world. But if you want to reach every place of Moscow and feel the power of people that were building Moscow for ages - go to Vorobyovy Gory. They will tell you a brief history of our civilization, especially, when you know where to look. Also, Sparrow Hills have not only the observation deck, but many interesting and beautiful places too. Before going there, you need to know their history - that’ll make your observation even more exciting. If Kremlin is Moscow’s heart, then Sparrow Hills is the soul. As Anton Chekhov, famous writer, once said, “who wants to know Russia, should look at the Moscow from Vorobyovy Gory”
According to legend, this place was named in honor to pope Vorobey, who owned this place and gave it to the princess Sofja Vitotovna. At first, it was the place for kings, princes and aristocracy relax. After USSR came, this place began to grow its famous buildings and popularity among not only nobility, but also simple people. Here are the places that are worth your attention and where you definitely need to go.
This building is a great reminder of Soviet culture. If you want to understand what meant “beauty” for architecture in USSR - go there and look. It makes you feel very anachronistic and this is the most surprising things, because there are many older buildings that came straight from XVIII century. But these walls made of glass, strange decorations are really felt out of context for every tourist. The most bizarre thing is that this building was created for children. Doesn’t look very entertaining. Lenin, fire and pioneers - a perfect combination for a mural of pioneer palace.
Main building of MSU
Moscow State University is the most famous university in Russia. Because of that Stalin decided to make the main building of MSU really outstanding. The height of the main tower is 240 meters! Where can you find a university that high and that big. This is the highest university in the world and until 1990 was the highest building in whole Europe. Stalin really respected education.
The biggest stadium in Russia and one of the biggest in whole Europe - it can fit near 81000 people. Earlier, it was not that beautiful, but when Russia was decided to be the host of World Cup 2018, this stadium had a massive rebuilding. After that, it became one of the most beautiful sport complexes in the world.
This is the oldest park in Russia 6,5 kilometers long. Whole territory takes 60 hectares of space along the right side of Moskva River. This park has a lot of exotic plants, trees that were exported from many countries. There are many amusing places like table tennis tables, “Panda Park” for children, and mini-zoo with rabbits, sheeps and deers which you can pet and play with.
