Magyarcsanád (Romanian: Cenadul Unguresc; Serbian: Чaнaд / Čanad) a multi-ethnic village located in Csongrád (county), southeast Hungary near the Mureş River (Hungarian: Maros). The Maros is a border-river here between northern Hungary and southern Romania.
The population is mainly Hungarian, but many Romanians, Serbians and Romani people are also living here. Magyarcsanád has four churches: a Romanian Orthodox, a Serbian Orthodox, a Calvinist and a Roman Catholic.
An old stone cross was erected near Magyarcsanád in the Middle Ages. The cross still stands. There is a small isle called in Hungarian "Senki szigete" (in English: Nobody's Isle) some kilometers eastward from Magyarcsanád on the border river Mureş. The isle is inhabited by Phalacrocoracidae (Phalacrocorax carbo).
