Județ (county) in northern Romania, northeast of Cluj, which takes its its name from the towns of Bistriþa, or Bistritsa, the capital, and Nãsãud, northwest of Bistriþa (the county was simply called Nãsãud, 1918-40).

It became Romanian in 1919, confirmed in the Treaty of Trianon, 1920, but temporarily returned to Hungary 1940-4.   It lies in the northeast of Transylvania, and before 1918 (and again 1940-4) it had been the Hungarian county of Beszterce-Naszód.
