Zelenograd, Russia

A TGA Sister City Since 1992.

25 + Years!

Zelenograd, which means "green city" in Russian, is one of the prefects of Moscow with a population of approximately 180,000 people, 40% of whom have advanced graduate degrees. Zelenograd is known for its educational institutions, research labs, and high-tech businesses. Blending technological advancement and environmental concerns, Zelenograd has created a green belt to preserve its natural surroundings. It is known across Russia as both a prestigious, clean-air residential community with great infrastructure as well as a research-and-business hive strategically located minutes away from Moscow.

The Tulsa--Zelenograd Sister City Partnership

The Tulsa-Zelenograd Association (TZA) celebrates the Sister City relationship between Tulsa and Zelenograd, and has had several events to promote Russian culture, including:

  • A Russian lecture and film, Meeting Gorbachev, hosted at Circle Cinema.

  • With the support of TZA, two community volunteers (one of them traveled to Zelenograd through TZA as a high school student) began a monthly conversation club.

  • A group of six journalists from Zelenograd visited Tulsa June 2019 through the U.S. Library of Congress Open World Program.
