Tuchkov Bridge over the Malaya Neva

Malaya Neva (Russian: Ма́лая Нева́) is the second largest distributary of the Neva River. The Neva splits into Bolshaya Neva (the southern armlet) and Malaya Neva (the northern armlet) near the Vasilievsky Island's Strelka (easternmost tip of the island), in the historic center of the city of Saint Petersburg.

The Malaya Neva is 4.25 kilometres (2.64 mi) long; the width is from 200 to 400 metres (660 to 1,310 ft), and the depth is 3 to 7 metres (10 to 23 ft). It has its own armlets: Smolenka and Zhdanovka. There are two bridges across Malaya Neva: Exchange Bridge and Tuchkov Bridge.
