Geography[edit]

The Boryspil raion is located in the east-central area of the Kiev Oblast, and has a total area of 146 km².

On the raion's southern border flows the Dnieper River (Dnipro). Near the river, the raion's lowest elevation points are located. Other rivers that flow through the raion include: the left tributaries of the Dnieper: Pavlivka, Mlen, Ikva, and the right tributaries of the Trubizh River: Bochechky, Karan', Vohnyscha, Krasylivka, Al'ta, and Il'tytsia. All of the raion's rivers flow through the low-elevation territory, making all of the rivers flow more slowly. The rivers take their sources from winter snowfalls and seasonal rains.
