The federal city of Moscow, Russia is divided into twelve administrative okrugs, which are in turn subdivided into districts (raions). The city does not have a downtown area; the urban core is scattered across the city. Prominent business areas include Tverskoy, Arbat, and Presnensky Districts (the latter being home to the Moscow-City complex). Central Administrative Okrug as a whole has a large concentration of businesses. The city hall and major administration buildings are located in Tverskoy District (home to the Moscow Kremlin). Western Administrative Okrug is home to Moscow State University, Sparrow Hills and Mosfilm Studios, while North-Eastern hosts Ostankino Tower and VDNKh Exhibition Park. The total population of the Federal City of Moscow was 11,503,501 inhabitants at the Russian Census (2010).
