Podolsk (Russian: Подольск; IPA: [pɐˈdolʲsk]) is an industrial city, center of Podolsk Urban Okrug, Moscow Oblast, Russia, located on the Pakhra River (a tributary of the Moskva River). Population: 187,961 (2010 Census);[4] 180,963 (2002 Census);[8] 209,178 (1989 Census);[9] 183,000 (1974); 129,000 (1959); 72,000 (1939).


Before the Revolution of 1917, Podolsk was among one of the most industrialized cities in Russia. A Singer factory producing sewing machines was established here.

In 1971, Podolsk was awarded the Order of the Red Banner of Labor. In the Soviet times, Podolsk was one of the industrial giants in Moscow Oblast. At that time, there were more than seventy factories operating in the city. Most of the citizens were working at these plants.

Podolsk is the site of the Central Archive of the Russian Ministry of Defense.
