Peresvet (Russian: Пересве́т) is a town in Sergiyevo-Posadsky District of Moscow Oblast, Russia, located on the Kunya River (Dubna's tributary) 90 kilometers (56 mi) northeast of Moscow and 17 kilometers (11 mi) north of Sergiyev Posad, the administrative center of the district. Population: 14,147 (2010 Census);[2] 14,719 (2002 Census).[7]



It was founded in the summer of 1948 as the settlement of Novostroyka (Новостро́йка) servicing a research institute for bench testing of rocket engines and thermal vacuum chamber testing of spacecraft.[8] During the Soviet period, the settlement was completely under the institute's authority and remained a restricted area until 1992.[citation needed] In the first post-Soviet years, it was managed by the administration of the town of Krasnozavodsk. On December 8, 1999, Novostroyka and a part of Krasnozavodsk containing the research institute were incorporated into the town of Peresvet[9] (named after the medieval military hero Alexander Peresvet). The process was finalized on March 28, 2000.[10]
