The Bjelovar-Križevci County (Croatian: Bjelovarsko-križevačka županija; Hungarian: Belovár-Körös vármegye) was a historic administrative subdivision (županija) of the Kingdom of Croatia-Slavonia. Croatia-Slavonia was an autonomous kingdom within the Lands of the Crown of Saint Stephen (Transleithania), the Hungarian part of the dual Austro-Hungarian Empire. Its territory is presently in northern Croatia. Belovár and Körös are the Hungarian names for the cities Bjelovar and Križevci, respectively. The capital of the county was Bjelovar (Croatian, in Hungarian: Belovár).


The Bjelovar-Križevci County shared borders with the Hungarian county of Somogy, and the Croatian-Slavonian counties of Virovitica, Požega, Varaždin, and Zagreb. The river Drava formed its northeastern border. Its area was 5048 km² around 1910.


The territory of the Bjelovar-Križevci County was part of the Kingdom of Croatia when it entered a personal union with the Kingdom of Hungary in 1102, and with it became part of the Habsburg Monarchy in 1526. Bjelovar-Križevci County was formed in 1886 from the former counties Bjelovar and Križevci. In 1918 (confirmed by the Treaty of Trianon 1920), the county became part of the newly formed Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (Yugoslavia). Since 1991, when Croatia became independent from Yugoslavia, the county is part of Croatia.


In 1900, the county had a population of 303,620 people and was composed of the following linguistic communities:[1]


According to the census of 1900, the county was composed of the following religious communities:[2]
