This paper analyses the influence of metallurgy, the leading branch of industry in Sisak in the second half of the twentieth century, on the urban development of settlements. It also carries the short retrospective of the development of Željezara Sisak (Sisak Steelworks), since the urban transformation of the town is mostly based on the development of industry. New vacancies led to demographic changes that in the first place manifested in changes of the territorial arrangement of population. The influence of Željezara Sisak is clearly visible in the territorial expansion of the town, housing development and traffic system development as well as in educational system, recreation system etc.
