Noginsk (Russian: Ноги́нск) is a city and the administrative center of Noginsky District in Moscow Oblast, Russia, located 34 kilometers (21 mi) east of the Moscow Ring Road on the Klyazma River. Population: 100,072 (2010 Census); 117,555 (2002 Census); 123,020 (1989 Census).
Founded in 1389 as Rogozhi, the town was later renamed Bogorodsk (lit. [a town] of the Mother of God) by a Catherine the Great's decree in 1781, when it was granted town status. Throughout the 19th century and for a good part of the 20th century, the town was a major textile center, processing cotton, silk, and wool. In 1930, the town was renamed Noginsk after Bolshevik Viktor Nogin.
Within the framework of administrative divisions, Noginsk serves as the administrative center of Noginsky District. As an administrative division, it is, together with five rural localities, incorporated within Noginsky District as the City of Noginsk. As a municipal division, the City of Noginsk is incorporated within Noginsky Municipal District as Noginsk Urban Settlement.
The city's industrial production is concentrated on ceramics (two major holdings), food (Biserovo fisheries and a fish factory in Noginsk), beverage (one of Russia's biggest beverage producers is located near Noginsk), and construction materials.
Noginsk is a transport hub, being the intersection of the Nizhny Novgorod Highway, M7 (E22), and the Moscow Minor Ring road.
Rapid transit development plans include possible construction of a direct high-speed railway line connecting Noginsk to the prospective Serp i Molot railway/metro terminal or Shosse Entuziastov metro station.
