Orekhovo-Zuyevo () is an industrial city in Moscow Oblast, Russia, located east of Moscow in a forested area on the Klyazma River (a tributary of the Oka). The city was established in 1917 when three villages (Orekhovo, Zuyevo, and Nikolskoye) were merged, hence its name.

The place was mentioned in the Moscow Chronicles as the place called "Volochok" where the battle between Vladimir's prince Yury and Ryazan's prince Izyaslav took place. The name "Volochok" (or, as it was later called, "Zuyev Volochok") is derived from the Slavic word for "portage": a place where wooden ships were carried by land from one river to another. In this place in particular, the ships were usually moved by land between the Klyazma and Nerskaya Rivers. The villages Orekhovo and Zuyevo were mentioned in the chronicle several more times during the Middle Ages.In 1797, serf peasant Savva Morozov opened his first silk factory in Zuyevo. Later he shifted from silk to wool. In 1823, profits from his business allowed him to be freed from serfdom. In 1830, he moved his factories to the opposite bank of the Klyazma River to the place that was later named Nikolskoye.At the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries, Orekhovo and Zuyevo were the third largest textile production area in Russia after Moscow and St. Petersburg.The first and largest Russian strike occurred in 1885 at the Morozov's textile factories in Orekhovo-Zuyevo, starting on January 7, 1885 and lasting for several weeks, creating momentum for the revolutionary movement in Russia.Orekhovo-Zuyevo was granted city status in 1917.Administrative and municipal statusWithin the framework of administrative divisions, Orekhovo-Zuyevo serves as the administrative center of Orekhovo-Zuyevsky District, even though it is not a part of it.Law #11/2013-OZ As an administrative division, it is incorporated separately as Orekhovo-Zuyevo City Under Oblast Jurisdiction—an administrative unit with the status equal to that of the districts. As a municipal division, Orekhovo-Zuyevo City Under Oblast Jurisdiction is incorporated as Orekhovo-Zuyevo Urban Okrug.Law #201/2004-OZEconomyFor almost two centuries the economy of Orekhovo-Zuyevo was built on the textile industry, growing up around Savva Morozov's textile production. Cotton production in Orekhovo-Zuyevo made the city the third largest industrial center in Russia at the turn of the 20th century. After the Revolution of 1917, Morozov's textile mills were nationalized, becoming known as "Orekhovo-Zuyevsky Khlopchato-Bumazhny Kombinat" (the Orekhovo-Zuyevo Cotton Center). Textile production continued until the 1990s, when the Soviet textile industry collapsed due to poor management and the inability to compete with imported textiles, which were of better quality and cost less. Almost all production was shut down, and the factory halls were turned into market areas and trading centers.SportsAssociation footballThe city is the home of the oldest association football team in Russia. The first football team in Orekhovo-Zuyevo was organized by British G. G. Charnock, the vice-president of the Moscow Football League. It has played under several different names. In the early years it was known as "Morozovtsy" (named after the Morozov family which owned the textile production in the city). During the Soviet era, the team played under the name Znamya Truda (lit. the Banner of Labor). After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the team was purchased by Spartak Moscow and became one of Spartak's farm teams, known as "Spartak-Orekhovo". In 2003, the team changed its name back to Znamya Truda.In 1962, Znamya Truda reached the USSR Cup finals, losing 0:2 to Shakhtar Donetsk.In the 2007 season, Znamya Truda played in the Central Zone of the Second Division.GymnasticsOlympic medalist and Junior European champion Anna Pavlova was born in Orekhovo-Zuyevo.BadmintonOrekhovo-Zuyevo is famous for its badminton school. The city usually hosts the All-Russian badminton championships.Sports facilitiesThere are three athletic/football stadiums in the city: "Znamya Truda", "Torpedo", and "Khimik".The swimming complex "Neptun" is adjacent to the "Znamya Truda" stadium. The swimming pool has lanes.A new sport complex facility "Vostok" was opened in 2007 by Boris Gromov, the then-Governor of Moscow Oblast.International relationsTwin towns and sister citiesOrekhovo-Zuyevo is twinned with: Madona, Latvia Navapolatsk, Belarus Ouranopoli, GreeceNotable peopleIvan Babushkin (1873–1906), revolutionaryKonstantin Belikov (1909–1987), football defender and refereeMikhail Biryukov (born 1958), association football playerVladimir Bondarenko (1915–1943), Hero of Soviet Union, partisanMikhail Fedonkin (born 1946), paleontologistYakov Flier (1912–1977), pianistYury Kovalyov (1934–1979), association football playerLeonid Krasin (1870–1926), Soviet activistYuri Kurnenin (1954–2009), association football managerAlexander Melnikov (1930–2011), politicianSavva Morozov (1862–1905), textile producerAnna Pavlova (born 1987), Olympic gymnastAlexey Pichugin (born 1962), businessmanViktor Sukhorukov (born 1951), actorKorniliy (Titov) (born 1947), Metropolitan bishop of the Old Rite Orthodox ChurchAleksandr Uvarov (born 1960), football player and CoachValentin Yanin (born 1929), historianVenedikt Yerofeyev (1938–1990), writerSergei Zimin (1875–1942), entrepreneur and opera managerReferencesNotesSources
