Solotvyno (also Solotvina) (Ukrainian: Солотвино, Romanian: Slatina, Hungarian: Aknaszlatina and Hungarian: Faluszlatina, Rusyn: Солотвино, Yiddish: סעלאָטפֿינע (Selotfine), Slovak: Slatinské Doly) is an urban-type settlement in Tiachiv Raion in Zakarpattia Oblast of Ukraine, located adjacent to Romania, on the right bank of the Tisza River opposite the Romanian city of Sighetu Marmației. The village's name comes from the nearby salt mine.


Solotvyno was first mentioned c. 1360 (the former one was burned down by the Tatars in 1241). In 1910, the town had a population of 2,330, the majority of whom were Hungarian. The current population is 8,391 (2022 estimate)[1]. In 1920, the town became part of the newly formed Czechoslovakia, in 1939 it returned to Hungary. Many of the large Jewish population died in the Holocaust. After World War II, Solotvino became part of Ukraine in the Soviet Union. According to the 2001 Ukrainian Census, the majority of the population in the city is Romanian.

The town is the final stop of the Ukrainian section of the railway, which runs from Lviv to Transcarpathia. The village has a museum of salt miners.
