Bolshoy Begichev Island
|Native name: Большой Бегичев|
Location of Maliy Begichev and Bolshoy Begichev islands in the Khatanga Gulf
Bolshoy Begichev Island (Russia)
|Area||1,764 km2 (681 sq mi)|
Only 8.5 km west of Bolshoy Begichev lies the much smaller island known as Maliy Begichev Island. Its size is only 15 km sq. The border between administrative divisions of the Russian Federation runs between the two Begichev islands, so that while Maliy Begichev is in Krasnoyarsk Krai, Bolshoy Begichev is in the Sakha republic. Both Bolshoy Begichev and Maliy Begichev are named after Russian polar explorer Nikifor Begichev.
