The Dobruja Army was a World War I Russian, Romanian and Serbian field army that fought on the Romanian Front.

Field management was established in August 1916. The army was based primarily on the newly established 47th Army Corps and was sent to Romania to help defend Dobruja from a Bulgarian-German attack from the south. The core of the Dobruja Army was the 47th Russian Army Corps.

The Dobruja Army was disbanded in October 1916 after the loss of Cernavodă-Constanța line (following the Second Battle of Cobadin) and became part of the Danube Army.

Commander of the Army was Andrei Zayonchkovski.
