Noginsk ( ) is a town and the administrative center of Noginsky District of Moscow Oblast, Russia, located 34 km east of the MKAD ring road on the Klyazma River. Population:

Throughout the 19th century and for a good part of the 20th century, the town was a major textile center, processing cotton, silk, and wool. This Moscow satellite's industrial production is now concentrated on ceramics (two major holdings), food (Biserovo fisheries and a fish factory in Noginsk), beverage (one of Russia's biggest beverage producers is located near Noginsk) and construction materials. Noginsk is a transportation hub being the intersection of the Nizhny Novgorod highway, M7 (E22) and the Moscow Minor Ring road.

Founded in 1389 as Rogozhi, the town was later mentioned as Bogorodsk - a City of the Mother of God - in a Catherine the Great decree in around 1781 when it was granted the status of town. The town was renamed Noginsk in 1930 after Bolshevik Viktor Nogin. Some of the town's companies, such as Bogorodsk Brewery and Bogorodskavtotrans (a local transportation company), bear the name of Bogorodsk. An official campaign to definitively bring the city's historical name back was launched earlier this year and is ongoing.

Rapid transit development plans include possible construction of a direct high-speed railroad line connecting Noginsk to the prospective Serp i Molot railroad/metro terminal or Shosse Entuziastov metro station. The local transport system consists of buses and trams. Noginsk's current commuters' travel to and from with Moscow is provided by the M7 Moscow-Nizhny-Novgorod highway. This takes 30 minutes to one hour, depending on traffic conditions. There is also an indirect railroad line going through Fryazevo (the line running the first 16 km southward, whereas Moscow lies fue west of Noginsk. It was built in the late 19th century for the purposes of the textile industry and is still in use. Express train travel time is currently one hour and 10 minutes.

Vladimir Laptev was the Mayor of Noginsk until 2005. Current mayor is Vladimir Khvatov.
