The Körös culture is an Neolithic archaeological culture in Central Europe that was named after the river Körös in eastern Hungary. The same river has the name Criş in Romania. The two variants of the river name are used for the same archaeological culture in the two regions. The Criş culture survived from about 5800 to 5300 BC.

It is related to the neighboring Starčevo culture.
