Bārlad is a city in the Vaslui county, Romania on the Bārlad river, which waters the high plains of Eastern Moldavia.

At Bārlad the railway from Iaşi diverges, one branch skirting the river Siret, the other skirting the Pruth; both reunite at Galaţi. Among a maze of narrow and winding streets Bārlad possesses a few good modern buildings, including a fine hospital, administered by the St Spiridion Foundation of Iasi.

In the vicinity of the cities there are traces of a Roman camp.
