The title complex salt hydrate, [Cr(C13H9N 2O2)2]NO3·H2O, comprises discrete cations, nitrate anions and solvent water molecules. The Cr III atom is octahedrally coordinated by two anionic Schiff base ligands with the O atoms being cis. The two ligands differ significantly with dihedral angles between the pyridine and benzene rings of 4.8(2) and 24.9(2)°. The nitrate anion and solvent water molecule were modelled as being disordered, with the major components having site-occupancy values of 0.856(14) and 0.727(16), respectively. The crystal is built of alternating layers of cations and of anions plus water molecules, stacked along the c axis.
