Dolena (pronounced [dɔˈleːna]) is a settlement in the Haloze Hills in the Municipality of Videm in eastern Slovenia. The area traditionally belonged to the Styria region. It is now included in the Drava Statistical Region.[2]

Dobrava Castle was a castle in the settlement. It was first mentioned in written documents dating to 1419. The Partisans burned the castle to the ground in May 1944[3] and its ruins were removed after the war by an agricultural cooperative to develop the land.[4]
