Krasnogorsk (Russian: Красного́рск, Russian pronunciation: [krəsnɐˈgorsk]) is a city and the administrative center of Krasnogorsky District in Moscow Oblast, Russia, located on the Moskva River, adjacent to the northwestern boundary of Moscow. Population: 116,896 (2010 Census);[2] 92,545 (2002 Census);[6] 90,477 (1989 Census).[7]


An urban-type settlement was established here in 1932, to which town status was granted in 1940.[citation needed]

In the 1940s, the Antifascist Central School, in which many foreign Communists studied and lectured, was located at Krasnogorsk.[citation needed]

After the war, the German V2 rocket scientists which the Soviet Army had captured were settled here with their families.[citation needed]

Administrative and municipal status

The city is known for the Krasnogorsky Zavod company, which produced the Zorki, Zenit, and Krasnogorsk cameras there until the[citation needed] early 1990s. The coat of arms acknowledges this by featuring a prism and light rays.

Krasnogorsk is one of the few oblast cities that is connected to Moscow via Moscow Metro. It is served by Metro station Myakinino (named after a nearby village).

The city is home to Zorky Krasnogorsk bandy team, who are former national champions for men (three titles, one each for Soviet Union, Commonwealth of Independent States (the only season that title was played for) and Russia). After getting in financial problems, the team did not play in the 2016–17 Russian Bandy Super League, but will return to the highest division for the 2017–18 season.[8] The club has also become national champions for women. Their home arena, Zorky Stadium, has a capacity of 8,000.[9] 7th-9 December 2017, it will host a four nations tournament.[10]
