The Mureș (Romanian pronunciation: [ˈmureʃ]; Hungarian: Maros{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}, Hungarian pronunciation: [ˈmɒroʃ]; Latin: Marisus{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}; Serbian: Moriš{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}; Serbian Cyrillic: Мориш;German: Mieresch, Marosch or Muresch{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}; Turkish: Maroș or Muriș{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}) is a 789 km (492 mi) long river in Eastern Europe. It originates in the Hășmașu Mare Range in the Eastern Carpathian Mountains, Romania, rising close to the headwaters of the Olt River, and joins the Tisza at Szeged in southeastern Hungary.

The Mureș River flows through the Romanian counties Harghita, Mureș, Alba, Hunedoara and Arad, and the Hungarian county Csongrád. The largest cities on the Mureș/Maros are Târgu Mureș, Alba Iulia, Deva and Arad in Romania, and Szeged in Hungary.

The Mureș was known as the river Marisus in antiquity. It was also known in German as the Mieresch and Marosch owing to Transylvanian Saxon settlements and prior Austrian Habsburg rule. Salt used to be traded in medieval times on the river on large rafts.

The Hungarian reaches of the Mureș/Maros are 73 km long (22.3 km as the state border). Some 28.5 km² on the northern side of the river are protected as part of the Körös-Maros National Park. The Maros Floodplain Protected Area consists of gallery forests, floodplain meadows and 0.6 km² of forest reserve near Szeged.
