Krasna Polyana is located in western Sofia and is divided into six neighborhoods: Ilinden, Razsadnika, Krasna Polyana 1, 2, and 3, and the nature-friendly Zapaden Park, where an office and retail complex is scheduled to go up.

Krasna Polyana is a low-income neighbourhood, with a heavily populated ghetto housing thousands of Roma-Bulgarians. It made the news in 2007 when a fight among some youths escalated and a riot broke out in the streets. The area is quite run-down.
