Floreasca (Romanian pronunciation: [floˈre̯asca]) is a district in Bucharest, Romania, in Sector 1. Its name comes from Lake Floreasca, which is situated in the north of the neighborhood. The Floreasca Hospital is also situated in the neighbourhood, in its southern part. Floreasca is considered an upper class area. [1]

The neighborhood was built on a former landfill site. It is mainly composed of small apartment blocks of 3-4 floors, and has many green areas. Like other areas of Sector 1, its density is lower than other parts of Bucharest. In 2008, work at the Floreasca City Center started in the area,[2] which was completed in 2013.[3] In recent years, the desire of developers to increasingly build in the neighbourhood has led to conflicts with the residents.[4]
