Akmenė District Municipality is located in the north-west of Lithuania and borders Latvia. Its administrative centre is Naujoji Akmenė. Akmenė District with its centre in Akmenė town was established in 1950. In 1995, the Akmenė District Municipality was formed from the district, and the urban-type settlements of Venta and Viekšniai became towns. The territory of the municipality includes 3 towns – Akmenė, Naujoji Akmenė, Venta, 2 small towns – Kruopiai and Papilė and 165 villages.

The sports centre in the centre of the district, Naujoji Akmenė, is a school for non-formal education of children and adults, which is important for the whole region and had needed reconstruction for some time.
