Moșilor (literally, Elders) is a residential quarter in Bucharest's Sector 2. It houses the Foișorul de Foc and Silvestru Church. Its name derives from the main avenue Calea Moșilor which in turn is named after a well-known fair held in Obor square (Târgul Moşilor) from the 18th century up to the 1950s. The Moșilor quarter is serviced by tram lines 14, 16 and 21, and the M1 Line through Obor metro station.
