Piaţa Romană (Romanian for "Roman Square") is a metro station in central Bucharest, located in the square with the same name, on the main north-south axis of the city centre. It was not included in the initial plans of the network and was added at a later stage due to increasing demand. Because of this, the platforms are asymmetrical, very narrow (less than 1.5 m wide) and the waiting area is in a corridor separated by thick walls from the platforms in order to sustain the station's structure in the sandy soil, on which a number of 1920s high-rises are also situated.

The station was opened on 28 November 1987. It was added to the previously opened extension from Piața Unirii to Pipera.[2]
