HNK Dubrovnik was a Croatian football club based in the city of Dubrovnik, which played a total of three seasons in the Prva HNL, highest level of Football in Croatia. The club was dissolved during the 2003–04 season, when they sank to the second league of Dubrovnik-Neretva county.

A successor club which claims rights to Dubrovnik's honours and records was established in 2004 under the name HNK Dubrovnik 1919. However, they are not legally considered to be successors to the original Korotan and the two clubs' track records and honours are kept separate by the Croatian Football Federation.
