  Church of the Life-giving Trinity, Vorobievy Hills

The observation platform, which gives a good panoramic view of the city, is situated there at the steep bank of the Moskva River at an altitude of 85 m above the river (200 m above sea level). The hills, immortalized by many Russian poets and writers, were named apparently after the village Vorobyovo (literally: Sparrows' Village) located nearby. Moscow State University and the Church of the Life-giving Trinity are located on the Hills.
