FIFA World Cup Brings New Look to Moscow

The 2018 FIFA World Cup is poised to change an important view of Moscow. A very exciting addition is the construction of an enclosed cable lift connecting the Sparrow Hills (Vorobyovy Gory) Observation point with the Luzhniki Olympic stadium. Currently an open-air ski lift connects the observation point to the Moscow river but does not cross the river to the stadium.

 One of the stations will house a restaurant.  The length will be 737 meters (2,418 ft) long and have 3 stations. The Observation point is 200 metres (660 ft) above sea level and offers a panoramic view of Moscow.
