Nicolae Juravschi (or Nikolai Juravski) (born August 8, 1964) is a Moldovan politician and former canoe sprinter, who won three Olympic medals in the C-2 event with his teammate Viktor Reneysky. In the Soviet era Juravschi trained at the Armed Forces sports society in Kishinev (now Chișinău), Moldova.

The pair won two gold medals at the 1988 Summer Olympics, as competitors for the USSR. In the next three years Juravschi won a total of eight world championship gold medals in the C-2 and C-4 events.

Despite this success Reneysky and Juravschi were not selected for the Unified Team at the 1992 Olympics, having been defeated in the trials. Juravski was invited to represent Romania instead and reached two finals.

He then returned to Moldova and in 1995 persuaded his former partner Reneysky, from Belarus, to join forces once more and represent Moldova at the 1996 Olympics. The silver medal they won at the Atlanta games was Moldova's first-ever Olympic medal as an independent nation.

Juravski is now president of the Moldovan Olympic Committee and the Moldovan Canoe-Kayak Federation.

He has been a member of the Parliament of Moldova since 2011. Originally a member of the Liberal Democratic Party, he is now a member of the European People's Party of Moldova.
