Aprelevka (Russian: Апре́левка) is a town in Moscow Oblast, Russia, located along the railway MoscowKiev. It is 42 km away from Moscow. Population: 19,628 (2009 est.); 18,357 (2002 Census);[3] 21,178 (1989 Census).[4]

Aprelevka was founded in 1899. It received the urban-type settlement status in 1935, and the town status in 1961.

The town was named after the nearby Aprelevka River. While the name is quite similar to the Russian word "апрель" (April), it bears no ethymological connection to it. Rather, it is derived from the word "прель", meaning a "damp place" or a "bog".[5]

Aprelevka's most notable industry was the Soviet Union's largest plant producing vinyl discs, which was founded in 1910 by three German businessmen: Gottlieb Moll, his son Johann and August Kybarth. There is also a chemical plant in the town.
