Terespol [IPA-pl|t|e|'|r|e|s|p|o|l] is a town in eastern Poland on the border with Belarus. It lies on the border river Bug, directly opposite the city of Brest, Belarus. It has 6002 inhabitants (2004).

It is situated in Biała Podlaska County in Lublin Voivodeship (since 1999, before it belonged to Biała Podlaska Voivodeship between 1975 and 1998).

The town is a busy border crossing between Poland and Belarus on theroute Berlin-Warsaw-Minsk-Moscow. Around it one can find some of the old fortifications that were once part of the Brest Fortress.

Terespol features in a novel by the Yiddish Nobel Prize-winning writer Isaac Bashevis Singer, "The Family Moskat" (1950), in which the young protagonist, Asa Heshel Bennet, comes to Warsaw from his hometown of Terespol Minor to study. It is characterized as a typical backwater, Eastern European small town.
