The Bârzava (Romanian: "Bârzava", Serbian: "Brzava" or Брзава) is a river in Romania and Serbia. The Bârzava is 166 km long, has a drainage area of 1,190 km² (part of the Black Sea drainage basin) and flows into the Tamiš river.


The river name is of Slavic origin and means "the quick river" in Slavic languages.


The Bârzava springs out in the Semenic mountains part of the Transylvanian Alps, eastern Romania, east of the city of Anina. The river runs to the northeast, close to the Piatra Grozbe peak and through the village of Vâliug, reaching the northernmost part of the Semenic mountains, where it turns to the northwest. It runs through the city of Reşiţa, the largest settlement on its course, and continues next to the villages of Câlnic, Bocşa, Berzovia, and Şoşdea, where the Bârzava leaves the mountain region of Transylvania for the low and plain region of Banat. This is also where the river turns to the southwest, spills in several parallel streams and flows next to the villages of Sculia, Gătaia, Sângeorge, Roviniţa Mare and Denta. From this point, until its confluence into the Tamiš, the Bârzava's river bed is channeled. After it flows next to the village of Partoş, it forms a Romanian-Serbian border for a few kilometers and after the course of 127 km through Romania, the Bârzava enters Serbian province of Vojvodina near the hamlet of Markovićevo.


The Brzava runs next to the villages of Konak and Banatska Dubica, where it becomes part of the largest canal system in Serbia, Canal Danube-Tisa-Danube. The only remaining settlement on the river is the village of Jarkovac, before it empties into the Tamiš, south of the village of Botoš. The river's complete 39 km course through Serbia is statistically classified as a Canal Brzava, but its not navigable.
