Contemporanul (The Contemporary) was a Romanian literary magazine published in Iaşi, Romania, from 1881 to 1891.[1] It was sponsored by the socialist circle of the city.

A new magazine Contimporanul was published in the 1920s, claiming to continue the tradition of the former newspaper, without having the same political orientation towards Marxism.

A new series of the magazine was published in 1946 and continues till present.
