The Klaipėda Region is a modern and integral Baltic Sea Region, a centre for sustainable economic growth, science, technology, culture and tourism with well-developed infrastructure, where a high-quality living environment for a creative and community oriented person is created through close cooperation.

The Klaipėda Region consists of Klaipėda city, Klaipėda district, Palanga town, Neringa, Kretinga district, Skuodas district and Šilutė district municipalities. It is the only region in Lithuania having access to the seacoast: as many as four municipalities of the region are located by the Baltic Sea. Maritime trade traditions, as well as the tourism and recreation sector, has been developed here since ancient times. The Baltic Sea, the Curonian Lagoon and the Curonian Spit Peninsula are the unique landscape elements, distinguishing the Klaipėda Region from other regions of Lithuania.

The engine of regional economy – Klaipėda Seaport – is a non-freezing port of the eastern Baltic Sea located furthest to the north. The main advantage of the Klaipėda Region is a strategically convenient geographical location. The Klaipėda Region is the most attractive of all regions of the country in terms of the development of inbound and domestic tourism, as well as it is the major transport hub of the country, linking the West and the East. The region is developing the marine and inland waterways, railway, road and air transport. At the international level, the Klaipėda Region is bordering with the Republic of Latvia in the north and the Kaliningrad (Königsberg) region of the Russian Federation in the south, while the Baltic Sea connects the Klaipėda Region to Poland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Russia, Estonia and Latvia.
