Nork-Marash (Armenian: Նորք-Մարաշ) is a district of Yerevan, the capital of Armenia. It is located to the east of the city centre. It is bordered by the Kentron district form the west and the north, Nor Nork from the east and Erebuni from the south. The name of the district is derived from the Nork neighbourhood of Yerevan and the ancient major Armenian settlement of Marash in modern-day Turkish Republic. The district is commonly divided into 2 smaller neighbourhoods: Nork and Nor Marash.

The district was formed in 1996 through the merger of Nork and Nor Marash neighbourhoods. It has an area of 4.60 km² and a population of 11,300 (2011 official estimate).
