  • The Neman, Nemunas, Nyoman, Niemen or Memel is a major Eastern European river rising in Belarus and flowing through Lithuania before draining into the Curonian Lagoon, and then into the Baltic Sea at Klaipėda. It begins at the confluence of two smaller tributaries, about 15 kilometers southwest of the town of Uzda in central Belarus, and about 55 km southwest of Minsk. In its lower reaches, it forms the border between Lithuania and Russia's Kaliningrad Oblast. It also, very briefly, forms part of the border between Lithuania and Belarus. The fourteenth largest river in Europe, the largest in Lithuania, and the third largest in Belarus, the Neman is navigable for most of its 900 km length. The Neman/Nemunas river basin was formed during the Quaternary period, and is located roughly along the edge of the last glacial sheet, dating from about 25,000 – 22,000 years BC. Its depth varies from 1 meter in its upper courses to 5 meters in the lower basin.
