Minija is a river in western Lithuania and a tributary to Nemunas. It is 202 km (126 mi) long.[1] It begins from small Lake Didovas, and hydrographically from lake Sydeklis, 14 km south of Tel?iai. The rivulet that flows out of Sydeklis here is called Mava, in between Lake Ilgis and Lake Pluotinalis - Kliurk? and only after Lake Didovo it gets the Minija name.

It flows through Lakes Ilgis, Pluotinalis, Didovas, and Garg?dai, Priekul? towns before reaching the Atmata distributary of the Nemunas delta.

In 1873 a channel, called "Vilhelmo kanalas" was built that connected Minija directly with Klaip?da port.
