SPARROW HILLS IS a place that brings back many fond memories.
The header picture was taken at Sparrow Hills on 8 April 2007, after it snowed. Grey never looked more beautiful than in those photos we took that day!
Sparrow Hills is located at one of the highest points in Moscow and an observation platform there provides a panoramic view of the city, where one can clearly see Luzhniki Stadium and Moscow River.
Year round – especially during summer months – Sparrow Hills is busy with traders selling Russian souvenirs while busloads of tourists are dropped off to enjoy the view from the top, snap photos as well as shop for souvenirs. Locals flock there for leisure and it is also a point of interest for lovebirds and couples.
Sparrow Hills was our occassional weekend playground, a place that provided relaxation and sparked inspiration too.
