Dolna [ˈdɔlna] (German: Dollna) is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Leśnica, within Strzelce County, Opole Voivodeship, in south-western Poland. It lies approximately 6 kilometres (4 mi) north-east of Leśnica, 6 km (4 mi) south-west of Strzelce Opolskie, and 31 km (19 mi) south-east of the regional capital Opole.
The oldest known mention of the village comes from 1302, when it was part of the Piast-ruled fragmented Kingdom of Poland. From 1871 to 1945 it was part of Germany. In 1936, during a massive campaign of renaming of placenames, the Nazis changed its name to Niederkirch to remove traces of Polish origin, and from 1940 to 1943 they operated a forced labour camp for Jews in the village.
