Plessur District (German: Bezirk Plessur, Romansh: About this soundDistrict da la Plessur ) is a former administrative district in the canton of Graubünden, Switzerland. It had an area of 266.73 km2 (102.99 sq mi) and has a population of 40,707 in 2015. The former district is named after the river Plessur which crosses it.
