Kopačevo (Hungarian. Kopács) is a village in Baranja, within the municipality of Bilje, roughly 12 km away from Osijek. It is situated on the edge of Kopacki Rit. In the area of the village the remains of crockery and bronze jewelry were discovered from which it can be concluded that there were people living in the area in the second millennium BC. In the northern part of Kopačevo Romans built a settlement and fortress to defend against the barbarians which was most likely called Ad Labores. The first written record of the village is in the grant of the Hungarian King Andrew II. from 1212. Once the inhabitants engaged primarily in fishing, today most are engaged in farming and increasingly in the tourism industry.
