Novomoskovsk (error: {{lang-xx}}: text has italic markup (help), pronounced [nɔwɔmɔsˈkɔwsʲk]; Russian: Новомосковск) is a city in the Dnipropetrovsk Oblast (province) of Ukraine. Administratively, Novomoskovsk is incorporated as the city of oblast significance and serves as the administrative center of Novomoskovsk Raion (district) which it does not belong to.

Novomoskovsk is located predominantly on the right bank of Samara River, which is one of the left confluents of Dnieper River. Until 1782, when the city has got its current name, it was known as Samar, Samara, or Samarchyk. The city is located 27 kilometres from the oblast capital, Dnipro.

The city is famous for the Holy-Trinity Cathedral, built in 1778 by Yakym Pohrybniak from wood without any nails.
