This town of sport on the left bank of the river Drava has produced world class athletes in bowling (Pavica Galošević), canoeing (Matija Ljubek) and chess (Zorica Puljek). The many sports grounds, Olympic swimming pool and sports-recreational facilities all bear witness to the respect that sport is given here, and the artificial climbing wall with inclines for beginners and advanced climbers is the best one in Croatia.
The preserved historical buildings with their industrial architecture, the memorial to the narrow gauge railway, and Belišće bridge- viewpoint will satisfy the hunger of any curious visitor. The proximity of the rivers Drava and Karašica with their fishing and weekend areas, the numerous parks and avenues, the relaxation areas in Cerje wood and the coast of Jugovača are a green oasis where the people of Belišće are always happy to play host to friends and visitors!
And since they are already true gourmets, it is not strange at all that right here people organise the Fišijada, a competitive event for cooking fish paprikash.
