Silute region is located in the western part of Lithuania. Curonian Lagoon and a sandy spit Neringa separate the region from the Baltic Sea. The major part of the region is occupied by the Nemunas delta. The Nemunas is one of the biggest rivers flowing into the Baltic Sea, and it is the biggest river in our country.
Back in 1252 the area of the current Šilutė region was called Lamata, which means a low and marshy place. It had borders with the Prussian, Curonian and Samogitian lands. The rivers of the Nemunas delta had been abundant in fish since old times, therefore fishermen were establishing their settlements in ihe region.

Silute region is very big and there are the biggest island of Lithuania named Rusne. Rusnė is one of the oldest settlements founded on the Nemunas delta in the 15th century. Year 1419 is marked on the weathercock on the tower of Rusnė church. Rusnė is the only Lithuanian town situated on an island.
