The United Romania Party (Partidul România Unită) is a Romanian nationalist political party. It was founded by former Social Democratic Party member Bogdan Diaconu, who announced the party's creation in 2014.

The party claims to adhere to a "national-democratic" doctrine based on the ideas of Romanian historian and politician Nicolae Iorga and centered on principles of social justice, economic protectionism, Romanian nationalism and anticorruption.[2] According to a resolution adopted in September 2015, it opposes migrant quotas, same-sex marriage, adoption of the euro, and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), among others.[3] In the 2016 Romanian legislative election, the party received 207,608 votes in the Senate election, and 196,602 in the election to the Chamber of Deputies, not achieving the parliamentary status.
