"Moscow University" Vorobievy Hills Tip by Sharrie

Vorobievy Hills, Moscow: 40 reviews and 45 photos

  Stalinist Gothic style
by Sharrie

Like most countries, it's natural to assume the future leaders will probably be one of the many outstanding students in the University.
I said natural, not rightly ;-)

In this case, the Moscow State University.
No, we are not here to visit the future leader.
Rather this is where Sparrow Hills is.
Again, newly wed couples come here to take photos often. It offers a panoramic view of the city of Moscow.

To me, of interest is the architecture of the Moscow State University.
It's known to be Stalinist-Gothic style. Commissioned by Stalin & completed in 1953.
36 storeys!
Wow, one of the tallest universities I've ever encountered!

Address: metro: Universitet
