RUSNE is one of the oldest, most unique 
and partly the most interesting
settlements in Lithuania Minor in the
Nemunas Delta. The name of the largest
island in Lithuania was first mentioned
in written sources back in 1366, when the
German Order gradually began to establish
itself in the seaside and in the region
of the Curonian Lagoon. Rusnė is a border
town located on an island in the Nemunas
delta between the Atmata and Skirvytė
rivers, with the Pakalne river flowing in
the middle. On the other side of the river
is the Kaliningrad region of the Russian
Federation. The only way to Rusnė is the
bridge over Atmata. The first bridge to
the island was built in 1914. It was a
2-arched Peters Bridge, the remains of
which have survived to this day. Thirty
years later, in 1974, a new bridge was
built next to the old one. It is the
largest town in Lithuania on the island,
famous for its natural beauty, variety of
birds and spring floods. The area of the
island is 47 km².
The Ethnoculture and Information Center is a budgetary institution of Šilutė District Municipality, 
which fosters cultural and artistic activities in Rusnė Juknaičiai and Usėnai elderships. The center was
established in 2002.
