The Crișul Alb (Romanian), (Hungarian: Fehér-Körös) is a river in western Romania in the historical region of Transylvania and south-eastern Hungary (Békés county). Its source is in the southern Apuseni Mountains (Romanian: Munții Apuseni). It flows through the towns Brad, Ineu, Chişineu Criş in Romania, and Gyula in Hungary. Crossing the border of Hungary, the river, now called Fehér-Körös, joins the Fekete-Körös a few kilometres north from Gyula to form the Körös River.
