Sparrow Hills known as Lenin Hills between 1935 and 1999, is a hill on the right bank of the Moskva River and one of the highest points in Moscow. The observation platform, which gives a good panoramic view of the city, is on a steep bank 85 m above the river, or 200 m above sea level. The Luzhniki Stadium, where the opening and closing ceremonies for the 1980 Summer Olympics took place, is right below, across the Moskva River. Next to it is the Novodevichy Convent, with its Naryshkin Baroque towers. The main landmarks of the hills are the Moscow State University which was at one time the tallest building in Europe and the Trinity Church.

Address: Ulitsa Kosygina 18, Moscow, Russia
