GeographyEdit

It is named after the nearby Khortytsia island, a national cultural reserve. The raion is located in the southern portion of the city, on the right-bank of the Dnipro River, neighboring the villages of Baburka and Novoslobidka in Zaporizhia Oblast.[4] Its total area is 18.81 km2 (7.26 sq mi).[4]

HistoryEdit

The territory of the Khortytskyi District was first inhabited by German-speaking Mennonites settling the Chortitza Colony in the late 18th century. By the 1960s, the first residential neighborhoods were being constructed in the vicinity, which at the time administratively belonged to the city's Leninskyi District.[4]

On 19 January 1995, the Khortytskyi District was established out of a portion of the Leninskyi District by a decree of the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's parliament.[5]
