Neman River

The Neman (Lithuanian Nemunas; Belarusian: Нёман (Nyoman); Polish Niemen; German Memel; Swedish Njemen) is a major Eastern European River rising in Belarus and flowing 937 km through Lithuania before draining into the Baltic Sea near Klaipeda. Part of the Neman serves as the border between Russia's Kaliningrad oblast (formerly northern East Prussia) and Lithuania.

The largest tributary is the River Neris (Viliya).

The largest cities on the Neman are Hrodna (Belarus) and Kaunas (Lithuania).
