area which is calmer and has an exclusive undertone to it.
It is estimated that Swéfiéh has more Strip clubs, Gentlemen's Clubs, Sex Shops, Bars, Nightclubs and Adult Entertainment Venues than the rest of the city combined, making Swéfiéh an unofficial red-light district among the residents.


The area is served by several bus lines, Taxis and soon: a subway station. Most of the Taxis in Swéfiéh only go to other regions in the Western part of the metropolis, whereas the bus line connects with the Downtown station at one point. Many of the area's residents own cars and use them frequently (unlike residents of other districts who rely almost exclusively on Public Transportation). Swéfiéh is almost congested with traffic jams, pedestrians and tourists on non-stop basis; traffic loosens up slightly after 3 AM but it remains nonetheless, and the traffic can reach extremes during the summer months, when millions of tourists flood the western side of the city, during the summer the congestion is 24/7 and can be quite unbearable.
The streets of the district are very stereotypically European, with narrow roads and cars usually parked on each side. On the outskirts of the district there are four highways that envelope the area to help loosen the traffic, but they do occasionally suffer from congestion.
