The Sparrow Hills or Vorobyovy Gory is one of the natural sights of Moscow, which locates near the Novodevichy Cemetery and recognizes as one of the highest points of the city. One of the main features of this park is its height because, with that, it has a remarkable view over its neighboring area and the city in general. This point has helped the Sparrow Hills to attract lots of tourists who want to have a significant panoramic view over the city or would like to spend some time off the sightseeing and enjoy a lovely afternoon with their friends and family. The Sparrow Hills is often included in Moscow tours because of its popularity, and many travel companies, including us at the Star Travel Company, would recommend it on our tour to Russia.

Zaryadye Park is the next name on our list, which is only a few steps away from Red Square and the Moscow historical center. This modern park is both a great place for tourists to enjoy a walk or have a significant view over the Moskva River and a place to educate themselves on the history, nature, and eco-system of Russia as well. Zaryadye Park has several educational and cultural platforms, including a multifunctional concert hall, an underground museum, an amphitheater, and a media center, which gives you the opportunity to time travel throughout Russian history. One of the favorite spots for the tourists and one of the wonders of this park is the floating bridge, on which tourists would have the best view over the Kremlin and Moskva river. We extremely recommend this park to our travelers since it’s only a few minutes of walk away from Red Square and the well-known Kremlin.

Tsartsyno Palace

The Tsartsyno Palace that once caught the attention of Catherine the Great is a palace outside of Moscow, which has multiple historical structures alongside museums, parks, and musical fountains. Besides the museum and palace, Tsartsyno Park has bike and scooter rental spot, which is a popular activity among young tourists; a boat station that rents boats in summer to people who would love a delightful time on the lake; a walking path through the park, and electronic car tour, which gives you the information about the park and its fascinating history. You may visit this park only if you have enough time on your tour to Russia because it locates outside the city and there are enough attractions inside Moscow to keep you as busy as possible, but we recommend this place to tourists who would fancy having a country-side time in Moscow.
