HistoryEdit

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.

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

Administrative and municipal statusEdit

Within the framework of administrative divisions, Krasnogorsk serves as the administrative center of Krasnogorsky District.[1] As an administrative division, it is, together with two rural localities, incorporated within Krasnogorsky District as the Town of Krasnogorsk.[1] As a municipal division, the Town of Krasnogorsk is incorporated within Krasnogorsky Municipal District as Krasnogorsk Urban Settlement.[3]

EconomyEdit

The city is known for the Krasnogorsky Zavod company, which produced the Zorki, Zenit, and Krasnogorsk cameras there until the 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).

Crocus Expo, Russia's largest exhibition center, is located in Krasnogorsk.

SportsEdit

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]

Notable peopleEdit

Krasnogorsk is the birthplace of Russian hockey player Vladimir Petrov.
