Where to Rent an Apartment: The Best Areas for Foreign Employees and Students

Moscow is divided into 12 districts. Each county is unique. Some are good for industrial workers, others are good for students, and others are good for researchers. GlavUpDK has a housing stock located in the best areas of the capital. Choose a suitable location when renting a one-room apartment for the long term in Moscow:

Central Administrative Okrug, or Tsentralny Administrative Okrug

The Central District is not suitable if you are looking for a budget solution or a quiet life. On the other hand, here are the most attractive apartments and the center of the capital's cultural life.

Besides, the Central Administrative District has as many as 30 universities, including the Higher School of Economics, BMSTU, and Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory.

Northern Administrative Okrug, or Severny Administrative Okrug

The Northern District is a good solution if you come to Moscow in search of work. It takes second place in terms of the volume of manufactured products; about 500 thousand people are employed in it and related areas.

A bonus is very cheap housing in areas with poor traffic.

Unfortunately, production volumes are affecting the environment.

North-Western Administrative Okrug, or Severo-Zapadny Administrative Okrug The District is suitable if you study or work in the Central Administrative District, but do not want to overpay for location. This district is closest to the city center.

The environmental situation is better due to Serebryany Bor, a forest park with an area of ​​more than 300 hectares, but the proximity to the center still has an influence.

Western Administrative Okrug, or Zapadny Administrative Okrug

The territory of the Western administrative district has been considered prestigious for 70 years since members of the party elite began to settle in this district. 

Nowadays, environmentalists recognize this district as one of the most prosperous in the capital. The rental prices are higher, as prices in stores. If you are looking for cheaper options, other districts will be more suitable.

South-Western Administrative Okrug, or Yugo-Zapadny Administrative Okrug

Lack of industrial production and availability of green areas that improve air quality in the district make the South-Western administrative District the most favorable region.

The location is suitable for researchers. The Russian Academy of Sciences and most of the research institutes are located here.

Southern Administrative Okrug, or Yuzhny Administrative Okrug

Zone with quiet sleeping areas close to industrial enterprises. Easy to find a job.

The disadvantage is that the Southern Administrative District is densely populated. If you are not comfortable with a high population density, take a look at the Don region. It is calmer and has an emphasized architectural value.
