Kur River (कुर नदी) is in central Russia.

Location

It flows through the city of Kursk, where it falls into the Tuskar River, which then falls into the Seym. The name is related to a dialect word kur'ya 'long and narrow river bay,' which itself may be a borrowing from Komi kurya 'bay' (although it has been suggested that the latter is borrowed from Russian).
