Ruza

 

a city and administrative center of Ruza Raion, Moscow Oblast, RSFSR. Ruza is located on the Ruza River, a tributary of the Moskva River, 22 km northwest of the Tuchkovo railroad station on the Moscow-Viaz’ma line and 100 km west of Moscow. It has a medical school and a museum of local lore.

Ruza is first mentioned in 1339 as part of the Zvenigorod Principality. From the early 16th century it was part of the Muscovite state; a fortress-city, it protected the route to Moscow from the west. In 1782 it became a district capital in Moscow Province. Earthen embankments on the site of an ancient fortified town have been partly preserved at Ruza; an architectural monument is the Dmitrovskaia Church (1792). There are sanatoriums and houses of rest in the vicinity of Ruza.
