The area’s terrain is flat, and it includes localities with historical names: “Center”, “Three Wells”, “Konyovitsa”, “Jewish Geran” and “Batalova Vodenitsa”.

The urban fabric of the area is formed both by old neighborhoods, subject to partial or complete reconstruction, and by new residential complexes built 20-30 years ago, which continue to be completed. Here are built the Zones: B – 2, 3, 4, 5, 18 and 19, which are mutually complementary and connected territorial units. Electricity is also included. “Serdika”, which is a production sub-zone.
