Beltinci (pronounced [ˈbeːltintsi]; Prekmurje Slovene: Böltinci,[2] Hungarian: Belatinc[3] or Belatincz,[4] German: (Alt)Fellsdorf[5]) is a town in the Prekmurje region of northeastern Slovenia. It is the seat of the Municipality of Beltinci.

Until 1937, there was a Jewish Orthodox synagogue in Beltinci. It was built in 1860 and served the local Jewish community.

The parish church in the settlement is dedicated to Saint Ladislaus and belongs to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Murska Sobota. It dates from 1742 with late 19th-century alterations.[6]
