Neman (river)

The Neman, Nemunas, Nyoman, Niemen or Memel, a major Eastern European river, rises in Belarus and flows through Lithuania before draining into the Curonian Lagoon, and then into the Baltic Sea at KlaipÄ—da. It begins at the confluence of two smaller tributaries (map coordinates 53.348194,27.108377), about southwest of the town of Uzda in central Belarus, and about 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 length.

The Neman/Nemunas river basin formed during the Quaternary period, and is located roughly along the edge of the last glacial sheet, dating from about 25,000 to 22,000 years BC. Its depth varies from in its upper courses to in the lower basin.

Neman (album)

Neman is an album by the Serbian noise-rock band Klopka Za Pionira, released in 2006 (see 2006 in music) on the Ne-ton independent label. The album's five songs contain no lyrics and are mostly experiments with various noise-making machines that the band was building. The outcome of these experiments can be heard on the following albums, so this was a kind of a showcase of their future work. The songs do not have names, merely numbers that position them on the disk. All of the songs were recorded at once and are first takes and complete improvisations on the spot. __NOTOC__

Neman (bus)

Lida Buses Neman is a state-owned bus manufacturer located in Lida, Belarus.

The company was founded in May 1984 by the Ministry of Radio Industry of the Soviet Union to produce industrial equipment (assembly and testing machinery) for its parent Association Agat. In 1988, the plant was designated as pilot plant to manufacture prototypes. After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the plant reoriented itself to produce household items (gas burners, electric motors, fans). Since the factory still had unused capacity, it entered into agreement with the Likino Bus Factory (LiAZ) to produce LiAZ-5256 buses. It produced its first bus in 1994. It also produced fire trucks AC-40, buses PAZ-3205, vans GAZelle. In 1998, the company began to produce its own original Neman buses. In June 2011, the company produced its 1000th bus.
