Piața Unirii (Union Square) is a major metro station in Bucharest. It is located in the southern part of the city centre, in Unirii Square (Piața Unirii in Romanian) and it is one of the busiest stations of the Bucharest Metro. It is made up of two terminals, one on the M1 and M3 lines and another on the M2 line, linked by a passage.

A McDonald's fast-food restaurant is located in the vestibule above the M2 line platform. The station also features kiosks selling from newspapers to stationery, bakeries, a diversity of shops, public phones, a large transport police station (with a list of mugshots at the entrance) and mobile-phone servicing points. Due to the numerous entrances located in and around Piaţa Unirii square to the two metro terminals that make up the entire Piaţa Unirii station, it is located in Sectors 2, 3, 4, and 5 of Bucharest.
