List of rivers of Russia


List of rivers of Russia

Russia can be divided into a European and an Asian part. The dividing line is generally considered to be the Ural Mountains and the Caspian Sea. The European part is drained into the Arctic Ocean, Baltic Sea, Black Sea and Caspian Sea. The Asian part is drained into the Arctic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean.

Notable rivers of Russia in Europe are the Volga, Don, Kama, Oka and the Northern Dvina, while several other rivers originate in Russia but flow into other countries, such as the Dniepr and the Western Dvina.

In Asia, important rivers are the Ob, Irtysh, Yenisey, Angara River, Lena, Amur, Yana, Indigirka and Kolyma.

In the list below the rivers are grouped by the seas or oceans they flow into. Rivers that flow into other rivers are ordered by the proximity of their point of confluence to the mouth of the main river, i.e. the lower in the list, the more upstream.

There is an alphabetical list of rivers at the end of this article.
