Western Administrative District (Moscow)
|coat of arms||map|
|Name (russ.):||Западный административный округ|
The western administrative district is located on the western edge of the urban area of Moscow. The Setun flows through the area .
The western administrative district is divided into 13 districts. Over a million people live in the district. Due to the large number of green spaces, such as Fili Park , which is located on the banks of the Moscow River , many residential areas in the West District are among the most popular (and most expensive) in all of Moscow. The Kutuzov Prospekt artery, which is often used by government vehicles, also runs through the West District .
In this district, not far from the German consulate in the neighboring south-western administrative district on Prospect Vernadskowo 103, there is a housing estate that is predominantly inhabited by Germans. It was built in the 1970s to 1980s for the employees of the GDR embassy and trade agency and is now sometimes ironically referred to as "German Southwest".
