The Crișana area is a historical region in northwestern Romania.
It owes its name to the river Criș, whose tributaries Crișul Repede, Crișul Negru and Crișul Alb flow westwards from Romania and join in Hungary to form the Criș (Hungarian: Körös).
It is a historical landscape in eastern Hungary and western Romania that originally belonged to the Kingdom of Hungary but fell to the Principality of Transylvania in 1526, together with the Sathmar region and parts of Banat.
The Crișana region borders the Mureș River in the south and the Apuseni Mountains in the east. The largest cities on the Romanian side are Arad and Oradea.
It is mainly located in the counties of Arad and Bihor and in the economically strong planning regions of Western Romania and Northwestern Romania.
