Darova (German: Darowa; Hungarian: Daruvár) is a commune in Timiș County, Banat, Romania. It is composed of three villages: Darova, Hodoș (Krassóhodos) and Sacoșu Mare (Magyarszákos). Ștefănești (Istvánfalva) existed as a separate hamlet from 1885 to 1930, when it was merged into Darova, with Darova Nouă hamlet similarly absorbed in 1956.
