Zelenograd wis ane o the maist pouerful centers o electronics, microelectronics an computer industry in the Soviet Union, an it still plays a similar role in modren Roushie. It was developed as a reflection o the Californie Silicon Valley an kent as Soviet/Roushie Silicon Valley anaw.

In 1962 Alexander Shokin (Chairman o State Committee o Electronic Technology, then first Meenister o Electronic Technology) proposed tae chynge the line o futur ceety business tae electronics. Some researchers o Soviet electronics history mentioned, that similar idea wis proposed tae the Soviet govrenment bi twa fugitive Silicon Valley ingineers - Alfred Sarant (mair kent in Roushie as Philip Staros) an Joel Barr (Joseph Berg).

Afore 1989 Zelenograd wis a de-facto closed ceety in some aspect: it wis prohibitit tae tak photos in the central pairts o the ceety, near the plants, teachin and research facilities an the foreigners wur no admittit intae the ceety, as the buses enterin the ceety wur sporadically checked at the border.[8]

As Zelenograd wis built de novo on a previously empty, forestit place, its airchitectur an civic layout yields tae ane general airchitectural plan (chief airchitects Igor Rozhin (1956–1963), then Igor Pokrovsky (1963–2002)).

In 1988, Zelenograd incorporatit the umwhile veelage o Kryukovo, ane o the important steids durin the Battle o Moscow (October 1941 – Januar 1942). Several monuments tae the Defenders o Moscow an the heroes o the Great Patriotic War are locatit in Zelenograd an the surroondin aurie, the maist famous o which is the Shtyki Memorial, frae which the remains o the Unkent Sodger wur taken for reinterment at the Kremlin Wall in the Alexander Garden in Moscow.
