▪ Moscow oblast, Russia
also spelled  Korolev , formerly (1938–96)  Kaliningrad 

      city, Moscow oblast (region), Central federal district, western Russia. It lies just northeast of the city of Moscow. The area, known as Kalininsky, developed after 1928 as an industrial satellite, particularly for weapons manufacture, and dormitory town of the capital. It achieved city status and was renamed Kaliningrad in 1938. In 1996 the city was renamed in honour of the scientist Sergey Korolyov (Korolyov, Sergey Pavlovich). The community was traditionally known for its fine textiles, notably silk. After World War II, scientific research institutes were established in the city, which is a centre of Russia's space industry. Other high-technology and science-related industries also contribute to the local economy. Korolyov has many parks and a city museum; the former estate of the poet Marina Ivanovna Tsvetayeva (Tsvetayeva, Marina Ivanovna) is maintained as a museum. Pop. (2006 est.) 172,781.
