Subdivisions of Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, include the formal administrative subdivision into raions and the more detailed informal subdivision into historical neighborhoods. Administratively, the city is divided into "raions" ("districts"), which have their own locally elected governments with jurisdiction over a limited scope of affairs. Presently, there are 10 raions as you can see in Kiev districts map. Right-bank districts: Holosiivskyi Raion, Obolonskyi Raion, Pecherskyi Raion, Podilskyi Raion, Shevchenkivskyi Raion, Solomianskyi Raion, Sviatoshynskyi Raion. Left-bank districts: Darnytskyi Raion, Desnianskyi Raion, Dniprovskyi Raion. Most of the raions are named after respective historical neighborhoods of the city.
The first known formal subdivision of Kiev dates to 1810 when the city was subdivided into 4 parts: Pechersk, Starokyiv, and the first and the second parts of Podil. In 1833-1834 according to Tsar Nicholas I decree, Kiev was subdivided into 6 police raions; later being increased to 10. As of 1917, there were 8 Raion Councils (Duma), which were reorganized by Pavlo Skoropadskyi into 17 raions. In 1924 bolsheviks reorganized them into the bigger six party-administrated Raions with various sub-raions under Hryhoriy Hrynko administration. All the city modern raions that start with a letter D are located on the left bank of Dnieper as its mentioned in Kiev districts map and until 1927 were part of Chernigov Governorate with Darnytsia being the first to be incorporated within the city limits that year. Over the Soviet time, as city was expanding, the number of raions was gradually increasing. The raions has been also commonly named after Soviet party leaders, and as political situation was changing and some leaders were overturned by the other, so raion names were also changing. The last raion reform took place in 2001 when the number of raions has been decreased from 14 to 10.
