Marz (մարզ), plural marzer (մարզեր), is the name for a first-level administrative entity in Armenia.

The divisions in Nagorno-Karabakh Republic are not called marz. Instead, they are known as shrjan (շրջան).


This Armenian word is derived from the Persian word marz, meaning "border".


In English it is usually translated as province or region.
