History[edit]

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.
