The Körös (Hungarian pronunciation: ['kørø?]) or Cri? (Romanian pronunciation: ['kri?]) (German: Kreisch) is a river in eastern Hungary and western Romania. Its length is 128.6 km (79.9 mi) from the confluence of its two source rivers Fehér-Körös (Cri?ul Alb) and Fekete-Körös (Cri?ul Negru) to its outflow into the Tisza. Its drainage basin area is 27,537 km2 (10,632 sq mi).[1]:22 It has three source rivers, all of which have their origin in the Apuseni Mountains in Transylvania, Romania: Cri?ul Alb (Fehér-Körös), Cri?ul Negru (Fekete-Körös) and Cri?ul Repede (Sebes-Körös). The confluence of the rivers Fehér-Körös (Cri?ul Alb) and Fekete-Körös (Cri?ul Negru) is near the town Gyula. The Körös downstream from Gyula is also called the Kett?s-Körös (Hungarian for "double Körös"). 37.3 km further downstream, near Gyomaendr?d, the Sebes-Körös (Cri?ul Repede) joins the Cri?/Körös. The section downstream from Gyomaendr?d is also called the Hármas-Körös (Hungarian for "triple Körös"). The Körös flows into the Tisza River near Csongrád.

It was known in antiquity as the "Chrysus", Crisus, Crisia, Grisia, or Gerasus, while an archaic German name is Kreisch.
