Belishche is a town located in the region of Slavonia, in Osijek-Baranja County. This industrial city on the Drava River lies near the border with Hungary.
The main occupations are forestry, wood processing (sawmill, chemical and mechanical wood processing), production of corrugated fiberboard, metal industry, production of chemicals and processing of synthetic materials.
The influential Gutmann family significantly influenced the area of Belishche in the 19th and 20th centuries. The vast Slavonian oak forests were mostly replaced by agricultural land, and part of the workers' quarter of Salamon H. Gutmann from 1884 became part of today's Belishche. Major recreational activities include fishing, kayaking and canoeing on the Drava and its backwaters, and hunting in the wider environment.
