The Cheremosh River (Ukrainian: Черемош, Romanian: Ceremuş, Polish: Czeremosz) is a river in western Ukraine, tributary of the Prut River.
It flows along the borderline of the historic regions of Bukovina and Galicia. In the Middle Ages and the early modern era, it was part of the borderline between the Principality of Moldavia and Kingdom of Poland. Currently it runs along the borderline between the Ivano-Frankivsk and Chernivtsi Oblasts.
Both banks in the upper part of the river are inhabited by Hutsuls.
The two upper streams of this river are called Bilyi Cheremosh (White Cheremosh) and Chornyi Cheremosh (Black Cheremosh). The river starts in the Carpathian Mountains and flows roughly SW to NE. It leaves the Bukovina Obchinas (a mountain range in Outer Eastern Carpathians stretching in Ukraine and Romania) to the river's right, and the historic subregion of Pokuttya to the river's left side.
