Kutuzovsky Prospekt is a major radial avenue in Moscow. It was named after M. I. Kutuzov, the leader of Russian army during the French invasion. Among famous buildings there are the Battle of Borodino Panorama Museum, the Poklonnay Hill and the Triumphal Arch.
The third and the oldest surviving Triumphal Arch in Moscow was built in 1829-34 on Tverskaya Gate Square to J. Bove's designs in order to commemorate Russia's victory over Napoleon. The arch was demolished in 1936 as part of Stalin's reconstruction of Moscow. The current arch was built to Bove's original designs in 1966-68.
In older days it was a custom for people coming to Moscow by this road to stop on the hill and bow to Moscow in respect. It was here where Napoleon once waited in vain for a delegation of Muscovites to come and surrender the keys to the city to him. Near the Poklonnay Hill there is the Battle of Borodino Panorama museum.
The exposure of the Battle of Borodino Panorama museum is completely dedicated to the patriotic war of 1812. The central exhibit is panorama - bright model of the military history painting of beginning XX, dedicated to one of the key moments - to Borodino battle.
The right bank of the Moskva River is high like a hill that is why this place is called a Sparrow Hills. But it is called not after a bird, but after a priest whose nickname was Sparrow. From the sparrow Hills you can see Novodevichiy convent, the Kremlin etc. A new building of Moscow State University was built there.
Moscow State University is the largest university in Russia. It was founded in 1755 by russian scientist M.V. Lomonosov. It has the tallest educational building in the world. According to Lomonosov's plan, there were only three faculties. Nowadays the University has 39 faculties and 15 research centers.
